This Bordeaux Clairet is a real curiosity vinified as a light red wine. Fruit, freshness, tenderness, which does not exclude balance and character. Made from cabernet franc, this gives to this wine a lot of elegance. Ideal in summer, as an aperitif, with cold buffets and grilled meat, this gourmet rosé accompanies with superb salads, buckwheat pancakes, a chicken curry, Italian and exotic cuisine … To drink within 2 years after bottling.
