Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. The Bordeaux rosé appellation wines are made using a short skin contact of just a few hours; the juice, free of tannins, is then vinified like a white wine. Bordeaux rosés are supple with fruity aromas, fresh, elegant and long on the palate.

The Girondins fountain, dear to the hearts of all in Bordeaux, is found on the Place des Quinconces. It celebrates the glory of the Girondins and was created by sculptor Dumilâtre. Consisting of 52 tonnes of bronze, the sculpture was erected between 1894 and 1902, and removed during the Second World War by the French resistance to avoid having it melted down to make cannons. It was finally reinstalled in 1982 under the aegis of the Bordeaux Town Hall. Chevaux des Girondins is available in Bordeaux red, Bordeaux rosé, Bordeaux dry white and Bordeaux moelleux (sweet white).

winemaking and ageing

The grapes are harvested early in the morning to avoid strong heat. Rapid destemming and crushing of the grapes. Short skin contact of a few hours. Pressing of the grapes. The must obtained is cold settled before the alcoholic fermentation. This continues until all the sugar is used up, to provide a dry wine. It takes place with temperature control in the presence of yeasts selected according to the required profile. Ageing on fine lees.

food pairings

Serve at between 10 and 12°C with skewers, grilled meats or seasonal salads.
