Clarendelle Bordeaux Rose Haut Brion 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

“This truly-claret Rosé blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the Right Bank and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Left Bank is the ultimate crowd-pleaser and in many ways challenges Provence for its value and character! With the Haut –Brion touch here there is a soft inviting mouthfeel from the Merlot with the Cabernet providing some nice structure underneath to allow for more food pairings at the table. From its historic pedigree, its pale cherry color, and extremely well-balanced personality this is a fuller-style Rosé that will convert ney-sayers to Bordeaux Rosé. Expect to find nuances of lychee, strawberry, citrus, spice, herbs, and mouthwatering acidity” - The Zachys Buying Team

In the early days wines were known by the name of the parishes from whence they came. Later they became known as clarets. In the case of Haut-Brion, under the great stewardship of the Pontac family the wine's reputation was for years represented by the name of this enlightened and well respected family-- Pontac wine. Eventually as its renown grew, the name of the Estate came to replace that of its owners. The notion of a Great Growth was born! We find the first written mention of the wine in the Diaries of Samuel Pepys. While visiting the Royal Oak Tavern in London on April 10, 1663 Pepys wrote "There I drank a sort of French wine called Ho-Bryan (sic) which hath a good and most particular taste which I never before encountered....."
