Château Thieuley red and white have been one of the most popular wines in Calvert Woodleys extensive petit chateaux collection for almost 30 years. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of owner Francis Courselle, and more recently, his daughter Mary, Château Thieuleys crisp, refreshingly dry rosé has emerged as a charming companion to the stalwart Thieuley reds and whites. Although the rosé is made from 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Cabernet Franc, the key to its winning ways is unquestionably the Cabernet Franc. This grapes fresh, spicy, herbal signature is writ large in the aromatic bouquet and crisp, airy finish, where it joins a chorus of tart cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes provided by the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine will work brilliantly with grilled salmon, rosy veal chops, vegetarian dishes, or all by itself as an aperitif.
