|EAN:||Château de la Jaubertie Bergerac rosé|
Fresh and fruity French rosé made from cabernet sauvignon and merlot grapes. Full of flavor. Very suitable for on the terrace but also nice with cold salads with fish or meat.
Also the rosé from Jaubertie deserves all attention. At the base, cabernet sauvignon- (40%) and merlot grapes (60%) have a low yield. The grapes are cool and slowly mistaken which emphasizes the fruitiness.
Hugh Ryman makes his rosé especially distinctive by applying almost the same vinification as in white wine.
20% of the harvest of yeast in three to five years old oak casks which is unusual for rosé. This gives the wine more complexity and a fuller flavor structure. Because of its aromatic strength and freshness, this rosé is also very suitable as terrace wine.
Hugh Ryman about the differences between Bordeaux and Bergerac:
Ryman: "Compared with Bordeaux, our climate is different. There is less rainfall and the climate is more continental with colder winters and warmer summers. This makes in fact organic viticulture in Bergerac easier than in Bordeaux and explains why 11% of the appellation is currently certified organic.
Although we plant the same grapes, the influence of the climate gives us another quality grape. That is why, especially with our red wines, we have adjusted the way of making wine. Usually we have more color natural roundness and structure in our red wines and more ripe fruit and natural freshness in the white.
For the red wines we are now also looking for late ripening grapes such as malbec and cabernet franc. They do extremely well in bergerac and make the difference with Bordeaux. The same goes for white wines: we have plenty of old sémillon sticks that give a fantastic result. In taste our red Bergerac wines are smoother, they also have more color and ripened fruit. "
