Langlois-Chateau - Cabernet de Saumur Rose 2013-14Rose Wine
Available 30th Aug 2016
From the vineyards in Coudray-Macouard, the Cabernet Franc is planted on chalky-clay soil. This harvest yielded 60 hl/ha and was fully destemmed before a gentle pressing. Maceration was undertaken for 12 to 24 hours to obtain colour and body before fermentation at controlled temperatures to preserve the fresh fruit aromas. Filtration was through kieselguhr and the wine was cooled before bottling to avoid the formation of tartaric crystals.
This exceptionally summery dry Rose made wholly from selected Cabernet Franc vines offers a wealth of raspberry fruit and a fresh, leafy characters.
Have a glass on your terrace as an aperitif or enjoy it with a meal. This dry rose is a typical Cabernet Franc. It goes perfectly with raw vegetables, salads and grilled meat - the perfect summer wine!
