La vie en rose

In hot weather, there is nothing like the champagne, white and rosé during a meal.

The 2009 Domaine de Chevalier Rose is really good, able to compete with the best classified growths from Provence. Seldom is it mentioned that Bordeaux also makes rosé wines and even a local specialty called Claret, to be drank simply, fresh, with grilled steaks, salads, fish; this wine works wonders!
(And I almost forgot the sparkling! - Lionel if you read me )

The price and quality of the roses we sell in our stores in St Emilion are obviously dependent on the sun and weather. Yesterday, there was sun and the shops sold roses, if the temperature is a bit colder, it's red wine. The climate in addition to the economic environment make and break the success or failure of sales! (We sell the Rose from Chevalier at 9 euro and good Bordeaux Chateau Subilaux and Chateau Lafont Fourcat for 5 euro)

To be more financially independence, we went from 2 wine shops in St. Emilion and 1 Maury last year to 2 more in Saint Emilion and 1 in Margaux, in addition to our website, this makes a lot of bottles.
Especially if you include our customers who rent the Chateau Valandraud in Saint Etienne de Lisse and are very willing to buy our wines.
Small creeks make big rivers.
