Bordeaux Rosé: The Perfect Summer Wine

Bordeaux is best known for its red wines, but the region also produces some delicious rosé wines. These wines are made from various red grapes, including Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are typically harvested early in the season, which gives the wine its light pink colour and delicate flavours.

Bordeaux rosé wines are typically dry and refreshing, with strawberry, white-fleshed fruits, and citrus flavours. They are an excellent choice for summer drinking and pair well with various foods, such as salads, seafood, and grilled meats.

At Bacchus Wines PLDC, we love rosé wine and two in particular by Château de Parenchère are worth trying. Both are entirely different, with their own merits and nuances. 

The La Roseraie Bordeaux Rosé 

The La Roseraie Bordeaux Rosé is light and subtle with excellent freshness. The rose petal coloured wine offers floral aromas of hawthorn, lychee and rose.

It is named in honour of the 18th-century rose garden on the Château de Parenchère estate.

The La Roseraie Bordeaux Rosé, produced from direct pressing, was created to obtain the most refined and most delicate wine possible.

2020 Vintage comprises:

  • 65% Cabernet Sauvignon – offers structure and tannic density
  • 35% Cabernet Franc – offers aromatic finesse 


The La Roseraie Bordeaux Rosé is ideal with creamy dishes, cheese, smoked salmon, and desserts with strawberries.

2020 vintage 

“Pale pink colour, light grey reflections. Small red fruits scents (strawberry, raspberry) with a touch of menthol. Fresh attack of the fruit. A thirst-quenching wine with marine accents and a mineral finish. Serve with vegetable salads.”

The Bordeaux Clairet

The Bordeaux Clairet is a particularly aromatic wine with deep red fruit colour. It is more substantial than traditional rosés, with a good body and exuberant fruitiness. This roundness and pronounced structure make it a perfect rosé for gastronomy.

This unique wine is called a ‘rosé of Saignées’ thanks to the more extended maceration before fermentation begins.

2020 Vintage comprises:

  • 100 % Merlot – offers suppleness, fruitiness, and roundness


The Bordeaux Clairet is very versatile and great with spiced food, Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine, BBQ, pasta, meat and seafood.

Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve

“Well done. Intense and sustained colour. Concentrated and intensely aromatic. It is a Clairet of personality with a good volume in the mouth.”

If you are looking for a delicious and refreshing rosé wine to enjoy this summer, our Château de Parenchère rosés offer excellent flavour, value and contrasting style to suit every palate. 

So there you have it! Bordeaux rosé wine is a delicious and versatile wine perfect for summer. So next time you want a refreshing drink on a hot day, reach for a glass of Bordeaux rosé. You won’t be disappointed!
