WINEMAKER NOTES

The Carrelet d’Estuaire cuvée was inspired by the landscapes found along the estuaries of France, and more particularly those of the Gironde.

But what is a carrelet? It is a fishing hut with atypical silhouette, very recognizable. Perched on its pilings, it has a large net overhanging the water that just lower and then back to see if the white shrimp of the Estuary are at the rendezvous … or not! Carrelet Estuaire Bordeaux rosé, a fresh and fruity wine, is like a call for relaxation, holidays, aperitifs with friends.

This rosé wine symbolizes the attachment of the Vignerons de Tutiac to their territory.

TASTING NOTES

This wine offers a beautiful pale pink robe, frank and lively. The nose is very aromatic and delivers notes of red fruits and citrus fruits. On the palate this wine has a nice balance of cassis, strawberry, and grapefruit notes. Beautiful aromatic persistence.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Aperitif, grilled meats, savory pies.

VINEYARD

Variety of soils ranging from sandy-gravelly to clay-limestone.

VINIFICATION

Direct pressing. The control of temperatures makes it possible to reveal the aromas.
