Bordeaux makes some of the best Roses in the world and Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Rose is no exception. The Bordeaux Clairets—better known as Rose—have been a favorite Bordelaise drink for centuries.
In fact this is where our English word for Claret originated from. Clairet is made by the saignee method which uses red grapes but only allows the juice to remain in contact with them for a short time. This way, the wine maker creates a pale red wine full of the aromas and flavors of the red grapes but with a totally different character.
