Wine of the Week - Medeville Bordeaux Rosé

Today's featured wine is the Médeville Bordeaux Rosé, a Cabernet-based blend from the southern part of the region. This is a refreshing rosé that also features a little more fruit and body. Médeville has recently reaffirmed its commitment to sustainability by producing in High Environmental Value (HEV) Level 3. This is a new step for them to protect the environment by identifying and promoting particularly environmentally friendly practices that cover four key areas: biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, managed fertiliser use, and water resource management.

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.
