Olga Raffault Chinon Rose


Olga Raffault Chinon Rose is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.


It is 100% hand-harvested Cabernet Franc, 50% certified-organic estate fruit (from sandy, gravelly, flat parcels along the Vienne) and 50% from a neighbor who is in the process of converting to organic farming. Half of the fruit is pressed directly as whole clusters and the other half is saigne (bleeding of the pale juice of their red Chinon early in fermentation).Only native yeasts are used, fermentation is in stainless steel tanks.


The result is a salmon/pink colored rose with lovely hints of red fruits, savory earth hints, and floral top-notes. On the palate it is lively, focused, and refreshing – dry with lovely acidity, tension and a hint of tannin. Utterly food friendly and versatile, perfect all on its own or with salads, seafood, grilled vegetables, light meats, cheeses, charcuterie and so much more.
