Château de Lisennes Bordeaux Clairet Rosé 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Not to be confused with Claret, Clairet is the French term used to describe the rosé wines of the region. Clairet is more than a rosé but less than a red wine. Bordeaux clairets are made like red wines but the juice is only allowed brief contact with the skins; hence, the pink colour. This is an excellent example, having been given a 5 star rating in top French wine magazine 'La Revue du Vin de France' and a Coup de Coeur in Guide Hachette. Fruity and full bodied, this is the top Clairet of the vintage from this excellent Chateau and delivers wild strawberry and redcurrant flavours. The fresh fruit and acidity makes this wine quite refreshing and also a good match for fish such as salmon, served either warm or chilled as a salad or entrée.
