The Haut-Brion Inspired Rosé!! Think of It As a First Growth Touch from the Highly-Anticipated 2016 Vintage of Everyone’s Favorite Warm Weather Wine!! At $14.99 It Is the Perfect Everyday Table Rosé!!
It’s the first day of spring and the sun is shining; I could not think of a better fit to celebrate the momentous occasion: the debut of the Rosé from the iconic team at Haut-Brion and their celebrated and accomplished First Growth winemaker Jean-Philippe Delmas for under $15! It’s a sneak peek to the highly-anticipated 2016 Bordeaux vintage – one that is already being compared to the legendary vintages of 1961 and 1982.
That’s right, little of this relatively small production rosé arrives in the US, and the good news is we tasted it today and are now enthusiastically bringing in a limited quantity of this unique claret find. The reality is, this is a rosé from the magic hands of the beloved icon at just $14.99 and it will be gone by the time we reach temperatures in the 80s. So act fast and load up, as this is great table rosé that also gives a taste of just how exciting the 2016 vintage is shaping up to be in Bordeaux!
Here’s a little fun information on the Rosé: ever wonder what the traditional wine for lunch at Château Haut-Brion has been over the past decades? Going back to the 1930s the table wine has traditionally been an old world claret Rosé, a small production wine made for family and staff. Well, since 2005 the Clarence Dillon family (owners of Haut-Brion) have bottled merlot and cabernet franc from the Right Bank and cabernet sauvignon from the Left Bank for this pure Bordeaux Rosé expression. Typically, less than 150 cases have arrived in the US, and Zachys is pleased to present this structured Haut-Brion inspired rosé at unbelievable pricing.
There are a few great Bordeaux Rosés that truly stand out - but it is ironically the touch of one of the region’s most historic and expensive wines that may just be the greatest value. Grab a case – you will undoubtedly get people talking about the HAUT-BRION inspired Rosé at your next BBQ! This special pricing is valid through March 31, 11:59pm or while supplies last.
All my best,
