2020 'Le Bourbon' Rosé

2020 'Le Bourbon' Rosé

Regular price $30.00 Sale

A mature, thoroughly modern take on premium press rosé, based upon the great work undertaken by Grand Cru Bordeaux Rosés developing the ‘serious’ side of the rosé category.

Crafted from Cabernet and Merlot grapes, 'Le Bourbon' Rosé elegantly combines a premium terroir, careful grape selection, dedicated winemaking attention and time maturing on lees to produce a gastronomic rosé well matched with food or by the pool.

A fresh and dry rosé with soft subtle strawberry and cherry notes, with a lingering crisp finish. The Bouquet is fresh strawberries, rose petals and a hint of vanilla oak.

'Le Bourbon' is a perfect combination with Salad Nicoise, green pesto-based pasta, paella or grilled chicken, fish or lamb with herbs. Similarly, it is very enjoyable with rustic pâtés and terrines, charcuterie boards and sheep’s cheeses. ‘Le Bourbon’ is named after the Commandant Beaurepaire rose which is of the Bourbon rose family. The rose takes its name from Colonel Nicolas-Joseph Beaurepaire. Nicolas was one of the first to be buried in the Pantheon in Paris as a hero of France for committing suicide rather than surrendering Verdun to the Prussians in 1792.
