About Bordeaux Rose

About Bordeaux Rose
Bordeaux Rosé, is a wine made from red Bordeaux varieties in which a slight blush or pink color is derived from brief skin contact. As with most rosés from quality regions, the wines are dry and have appealing young cherry and strawberry fruit; they are popular during the summer when the weather is hot. Consume them with salads or lighter poultry.

The most famous estates in Bordeaux do not make a rosé, rather it is large firms that produce small quantities; as these wines are not in great demand (other French rosés such as Tavel or those from Provence are much more complex), prices are inexpensive.
