Our buyers visited the world's biggest wine fair in March earlier this year and one thing which they came back very enthused about was Bordeaux rosé. The Bordelais have adapted with the times and this is an exciting new phenomenon among the trade. Our own founder, Esme Johnstone arguably put Bordeaux rosé on the map in the 90s at Château de Sours, so this is an area we know a thing or two about!


Argadens rosé comes from the Sichel family who have created a Provence style, pale and elegant rosé here. This family make some of the most special wines in the world at Châteaux Palmer and Angludet amongst many others all over France. This particular rosé is modern, stylish and is perfect for summer celebrations or to enjoy with a light summer evening meal. The vines are 30 years old giving this wine an additional and slightly mineral element. Truly brilliant - a revelation and the best part...we can sell it for £11.95 for our customers.

About

Since acquiring Château Argadens, the Sichel family has put in place a vast renovation program, with the aim of making the wine a benchmark within the Bordeaux category. Not surprisingly, Argadens' reds often reap high rewards and accolades in tastings and competitions. The original name of this property, parts of which date back to the 12th and 16th centuries, was La Salle d'Argadens. It became Château Argadens in 2002, when it was bought by Maison Sichel. Sichel's aim in acquiring Argadens was quite simply to see it express the full potential of its wonderful terroir and become one of the benchmark properties in the Bordeaux Supérieur category. To achieve this, the company has invested heavily in terms of finance, time and technology. Sichel's first vintage at the estate was 2002.
