Wine of the Week - Médeville Bordeaux Rosé

We continue with our rosé tour of the world with this week's offering - the Médeville et Fils Bordeaux Rosé. This Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend is medium-bodied and is perfect for a picnic, since it's so food friendly. Ideal with fish, chicken, pork, veggies - this is really the perfect food wine!

Founded in 1826 by Jérôme Médeville, a barrel cooper from the Cadillac region of Acquitaine, Château Medéville has been crafting fine Bordeaux for seven generations. Currently run by Jean, Jacques, and Marc Medéville, it is located south of the city of Bordeaux and encompasses terroirs on both sides of the Garonne River. Jean Médeville et Fils has always taken a modern approach to the production of high quality value-driven Bordeaux with up to date facilities and equipment. That said, they maintain elements of tradition during the winemaking process; the wines follow rigorous guidelines at every stage during viticulture and vinification.

Médeville now produces in High Environmental Value (HEV) Level 3. It is a new step for them to protect the environment and to to continue to be in sustainable for the Châteaux, employees and consumers. HEV is the highest level for the environmental certification of farms. the certification is a voluntary approach which aims to identify and promote particularly environmentally friendly practices applied by farmers and winegrowers. HEV covers four key areas: biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, managed fertiliser use, and water resource management.
