Our flagship rosé Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose received a fantastic review in the Canadian magazine, Calgary Herald. Wine expert Darren Oleksyn describes our rosé as follows:
“From Sloping vineyards around Béziers, the southwestern community in France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region, this light pink bottle features pretty floral aromas, with notes of watermelon, raspberry and pear.
The grapes for this wine – cinsault (45 per cent), Grenache (40 per cent) caladoc and syrah – are hand-harvested and fermented individually with native yeast before being blended for the final wine.
The palate is intriguing, with a definite salty tang balanced by soft fruit flavours of pear, orange tangerine and a bit of cedar. It is both refreshing and interesting. It is dedicated to Sophie Valrose, a female vineyard worker who, in the 19th century, fought to improve the working conditions for the many women employed in the vineyards.”
