This “rouge clair”, or “light red” is something between a red and rosé. A blend of 85% Abouriou, with the rest equal parts Malbec, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The grapes are vinified using three different techniques - carbonic maceration, saignée, and press - then blended in tank, and aged in foudres on the fine lees to make an unusual and surprising wine that’s perfect when served slightly chilled.
