Audebert was founded in the middle of the Loire Valley in 1839 and is still managed by the founding family. They're famous for two great red wines - Bourgueil and Chinon, made from Cabernet Franc. But, up until 10 years ago, you couldn't have found this wine outside of France, and not much in France either.

It was then that rose began its meteoric swing upward and became so popular that even former red-only appellations began making rose. Most found out this was not an easy task. Making any new wine even less so.

The Audebert Family not only had experience in making exemplary rose, they were making it with grapes from 60-year old vines. Most wineries would be offering their finest red from vines of this prestige and age. Audebert was satisfied with the making of the best roses possible.

Many wineries are content to make a rose by adding a little red wine to a lot of white. Not here. Audebert takes the time and trouble to keep the fermenting juice on the skins just long enough to get the color they want and then stop. This is much more troublesome than the alternative, but one can't argue the result.

The result of their efforts is a virtual floral basket of aromas and flavors that have the elusiveness of a white, but the soul of a red. Piquant cherry and orange blossom are delicately planted on the tongue before the tannin level kicks in for authority. Incredible with chicken or tuna salad, lasagna or shrimp diablo.
