Technical Sheet Press Review Order
The estate’s iconic wine, made from parcels situated on the estate plateau, where the soils are very thin. Vinified in 500-litre barrels renewed every year. An innovative process that offers a subtle combination of fruit and oak while preserving parcel selection. Château La Rose Perrière is a wine with a full-bodied and spicy character. Time will soften its power by bringing it this velvet touch revealed by the years.
