Wine of the Week: Chateau Lamothe Miette Rosé

This week's featured wine is one of our most food friendly rosé. With an exquisite body, and fragrant nose, this rosé from Chateau Lamothe is sure to delight a variety of wine drinkers. The Chateau Lamothe rosé is comprised of Cabernet Franc and  a drop of Merlot; with 50% skin content. The resulting wine is round, smooth, with a fruity yet savory flavor and a bright salmon pink hue. This delightful rosé has notes of strawberry and cherry, with a round, fresh and dry palate. Drink with any charcuterie platters, pungent cheeses, fresh flavorful pizzas, or poultry dishes. The Miette rosé could easily become a summer staple!

Located in the commune of Haux southwest of Bordeaux’s city center, Château Lamothe has actively produced estate-bottled wine since the 16th century. Its renovation in the 19th century yielded the distinctive façade now pictured on the label of each of the Lamothe cuvees. It is currently run by The Néel- Chombart family, who have owned the property since 1956. The Château currently spans 80 hectares of clay and limestone slopes in prime Bordeauxgrowing conditions. Over the past fifty years the family purchased morehectarage under vine and converted what were underground galleries below the chateau into cellars ideal for aging wine. Winemaking technology was also modernized and vastly improved. Today Château Lamothe’s distinctive label is recognized world-wide, and enjoys quite a following.
