Broc Cellars Le Clairet 2021


no added sulfur

Country: USA

Region: Solano County

Type: Red Wine

Grape: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon/10Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé

For this year’s release of Le Clairet, Broc made rosé from the same Cabernet vines from Wirth Ranch to add to the wine, making more of a lighter clairet style. The grapes for the rosé were foot stomped and left on the skins for 24 hours, then pressed into stainless tank. Most of the Cabernet was de-stemmed, with just a few whole clusters left to line the bottom of the tank. After spontaneous fermentation, it was pressed off the skins early in order to minimize the tannins. 

Medium-bodied with chewy red fruits and soft herbal notes. It’s fresh and bright, with lively acidity and low tannins. No sulfur added at any point. Serve with a light chill.
