A rosé that's not just for summer - we love the bright, cherry fruit and mouth-watering palate. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot at the Duffour family estate, Domaine Saint-Lannes, this has a lovely bright pink colour with aromas of candied red fruits. It's lively, refreshing and packed with strawberry and raspberry flavours, with a hint of cherry on the finish. Exclusive to Rude Wines.

'This rosé...carries enough tangy red cherry fruit to match sturdier fare than salads and salmon...there’s plenty of citrus bite to the juicy palate.'

Andy Cronshaw, Manchester Evening News

Rose Delight. It's so refreshing, a lovely change, enjoying. Matt

The Producer

Located in the centre of Gascony, south-west France, Domaine Saint Lannes has been owned and run by the Duffour family since 1955, with current owner Michel Duffour at the helm since 1971. Farming over 70 hectares of vineyard on unique chalky-clay soils, the estate’s philosophy is to respect the terroir of the region and champion local grape varieties, while at the same time creating wines that are a pleasure to drink and enjoy.

Winemaking

Owner Michel began producing wines on the estate in 1982, after decades of Armagnac production. His dedication to quality over quantity is immediately noticeable in the wines. By reducing yields and working meticulously in the winery they have made this estate one of the best and most consistent in the area and Michel is moving the estate towards sustainability. The choice of grape varieties leans towards the local Colombard and Gros Manseng, with the addition of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Petit Manseng, whiles red varietals are split between Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon and Tannat.

The Region

The estate spreads across the slopes of the Tenareze region in rural Gascony, in a landscape dotted with limestone quarries. With a downturn in Armagnac production came the opportunity for producers to explore the vinous possibilities of this stunning region, which has lead to a huge success on the export market. The proximity to the Pyrenees means a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, beneficial for the healthy development of the vines and a combination of freshness and rich flavours in the final wines. South facing slopes ensure early ripening of the grapes as well as perfect drainage.

Great discovery - full flavour wine. Reflective bouquet with refreshing, lingering taste.

Beauty in a glass

A strawberry rose that has real strawberry flavour without any of the sweet cloyingness that the description can imply. Excellent.

Spicy Spaghetti Marinara

A classic pasta dish originating in Naples that combines tomatoes and garlic in a rich wine-infused sauce - you could go red, white or rosé with this dish but if you are sticking with red, keep the fruit flavours full and the tannins light. We'd recommend the Domaine Saint-Lannes Les Coquelicots Rosé.
