Brilliant, bright Bordeaux rosé from our treasured Côtes de Castillon estate. 2017 saw yields plummet, but we held back enough Cabernet grapes to make this gorgeous, appetising pink. Fermented cool, this elegant, delicate fruit rosé is irresistible.
"One of the best rosés. Beautifully balanced, very crisp with floral overtones, nice fruity flavour"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
If you come to visit us at Château La Clarière in the heat of summer, we’re sure to offer you a well chilled glass of rosé. It’s a must, even if you’re a red wine drinker. And when the pink is this good, it would be foolish to resist. We don’t usually have enough grapes to make any sizeable quantity (the rest is reserved for our claret), but the wine has such a following that we always ensure we make some. It’s nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon, with a drop of Cabernet Franc, fermented very slowly and cold in stainless steel tanks. That way we capture the delicate summer berry fruit and zippy citrus freshness. You can breathe in all its lovely aromas, too. It really is as pretty and crisp as its label suggests, and is versatile with food.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
