Chateau Calvimont "La Quille" rosé 2018, Bordeaux. While rosé is gushing out from Provence in an industrial torrent, Calvimont are making rosé in small batches under their experimental, bistro-oriented "La Quille" label and are proud to make it with all the seriousness that goes into their Graves white and reds. Made from Merlot the aromatics are complex, subtley layered, and the palate is extra dry, clean, and refreshing. Colour is indistinguishable from Provence salmon-pink but the complexity, length, crystalline cut, and savoury structure mark this out as a serious wine in its own right. Please note that although all the fruit for this wine is grown in the Graves district, because there is no official recognition of a "Graves rosé", this wine has to be labelled as "Bordeaux rosé". Drink now to 2025. Post-arrival price will be $28.8. Today's special 20% off pre-departure price: $24 per bottle in any dozen(or $26 if less than 12 bottles ordered).
