N°1 de Dourthe Bordeaux Rosé

AOC Bordeaux

N°1 Bordeaux Rosé

With N°1 rosé, Dourthe has once again demonstrated its extraordinary nerve.  The collective passion of its team has led Dourthe to blaze a new trail so as to offer a premium quality wine that is modern and elegant in style.Grapes are sourced from vineyards meticulously chosen in collaboration with its partner growers, and parcels of vines are specifically selected for their suitability for rosé wines.  Precision winemaking harnesses all their rich character: the grapes are pressed after undergoing short, cold maceration, resulting in an attractive hue and lovely, aromatic complexity. Low temperature fermentation and three months spent on the lees in the cellars at Dourthe only serves to enhance the wine’s finesse. N°1 rosé stands apart with its appealing pale pink appearance, delicate, fruit-laden aromas and zesty flavours which leave a charming sense of freshness in its wake.

Vinification & Ageing

A specific and unique vinification : cold pre-maceration, cool fermentation.

The wine is aged on its lees for 3 months to enhance the aromatic finesse of the wine.

Tasting notes

Brilliant pale pink in appearance, N°1 rosé 2020 is an explosion of fresh, lingering aromas of just-picked raspberries and redcurrants. The freshness of aromas and acidity, completed by fantastic richness on the palate, is a great example of a 100% Cabernet Franc vinified as a rosé.

Une jolie robe pâle aux reflets violines habille ce 100% cabernet franc, au nez frais de fruits rouges (fraise, groseille) agrémenté d'une touche bien typée de poivron. La bouche, dans le droit fil, se montre bien fruitée, souple, alerte sans manquer de gras.

Tasting notes

Bracingly fresh, the bouquet is characterised by red berry fruit aromas of strawberries and redcurrants, which are echoed on the palate with appealing intensity. The freshness of the aromas and a hint of richness envelop the impressively well-structured core, typical of great Cabernet Franc when vinified as rosé. This harmonious wine culminates in a long, refreshing finish.
