Raymond Blanc de Noir rosé was made to celebrate Raymond’s visit to Camel Valley to film ‘Raymond Blanc’s Christmas’. Raymond picked grapes at Camel Valley and helped load the press; he cooked a famous meal with Annie Lindo in her farmhouse kitchen using Camel Valley’s own wild salmon. This limited release was made to honour that great occasion. ‘Cuvée Raymond’ is exclusively available from Le Manoir and Camel Valley.
South West Vineyards Association Competition 2016 Tasting Note:
Pale peach colour, tight bubbles; lovely strawberry and peach aromatics with gentle yeast overlay; bright acidity, silky-textured mousse supporting lovely red and white fruit across the palate, lingering finish. What a delicious wine! Where's the poached salmon with watercress-cream sauce?
