Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose Rosé

The Bijou Rosé grapes are sourced from selected vineyards on the sloping hillsides of Cabrières. The area lies on old volcanic soils that are composed of 70% schist, which helps create high-quality grapes with great structure and freshness. The vineyards lie at altitudes between 200 and 450 meters, meaning the micro-climate is significantly cooler than surrounding areas. The cool nights and warm days help the grapes to ripen slowly and develop more concentrated and complex flavours. Made from three grape varieties, we use Cinsault for its finesse and fullness, Grenache for its fruitiness and Syrah for its colour and spice.

BIJOU

Southern France - Languedoc
As the name suggests our Bijou trio sit as three jewels in our crown and are a nod to the breadth and quality of Southern France. The grapes for Bijou are grown in the relatively anonymous village of Cabrières in the Languedoc region. Whilst most may never of heard of this village it has a rich history in the context of wine production and can proudly trace reference, in the archives of Montpellier, back to the 14th century. Even the court of Louis XIV rated the wines from Cabrières for their ‘medicinal properties’! The village itself is encapsulated by the mighty Pic de Vissou, an extinct volcano, and the soils are schist heavy and packed with marine fossil all of which gives Cabrières and its vineyards a very distinct flavour profile and quality.

Elegantly crafted from indigenous Southern French varietals our Bijou wines have proven a huge success. The red is blended from Syrah and Grenache and displays soft tannins, supple texture and a palate of ripe berry fruit and hint of herbs, evocative of the warming Southern French countryside. Bijou Rosé is summer in a glass blended from Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah the palate is full of ripe red summer fruits and a refreshing zestiness. Bijou white is a 50/50 blend of Viognier and Chardonnay and is bursting with juicy tropical fruit character and a mouthwatering citrus finish.

New for 2016 we are delighted to be offering Bijou red and rosé in Magnum format alongside the bottle.
