Château Lamothe de Haux Clairet Rose 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot. Clairet is a kind of rosé that starts off being made like a red wine. After maceration lasting 24-48 hours, about 15% of the juice is 'bled off' from vats. It is thus more deeply-colored and full-bodied than a regular rosé wine. The appellation Bordeaux Clairet is strictly restricted to this type of wine. Our Clairet has a magnificent, brilliant, joyous color as well as a fine bouquet with cherry aromas. It is very smooth and fruity (strawberry and cherry) on the palate. Long and rich, it is perfect when served at 8-10°C with meats or exotic cuisine. Best enjoyed young, within 2 years of bottling. Clairet is thought of as a summer wine, but it is very pleasant all times of the year, especially as an accompaniment to simple meals.
