Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes
We dedicate this delightful Rosé to Madame Andrée Bosc – wife, mother and winery matriarch. We wanted to make a wine with as much joie de vivre as Madame. The vibrant pink certainly makes a statement. We were able to extract this colour by using only fully ripe grapes and by allowing an overnight cold soak to bleed out the colour from the skins. This is the old school way to make a crisp, dry Rosé. On the nose the aromas will remind you of fresh strawberries and cranberries. On the palate it is fresh and lively.
Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes
We take our Rosé very seriously. We believe that any wine we make must be made from the best grapes we can grow. This Rosé is no exception. We' ve chosen Pinot Noir to make this wine because we love the result. Notice the harvest date -- we choose specific bunches in the vineyard that we believe will make the best Rosé. In each Pinot Noir block, bunches for sparkling wine are picked first, then Rosé then the rest are left to hang so they develop the maturity needed for our Estate Grown & Bottled and 'Old Vines' Pinot Noirs.
