Pique Russe Rosé 2016

£9.99

Pique Russe is the name of the fields, the name of the producer and the name of this wonderful rosé wine.  I first tasted it in the vat and knew then it was exceptional for a rosé and I am delighted to be able to bring to to our customers in time for the summer.

Made in small quantities using traditional methods Pique Russe wines have a strong following and are growing in reputation, particularly in the Parisian restaurants where most of the production ends up.  This is yet another fine example of Yves’ work, a soft, light, fruity wine ready to drink now but which will also stand the test of time (estimated at 3 to 5 years).
