Chateau  Vignot
Pink Criquet is a limited edition rosé, born from a traditional winemaking technique that is a type of saignée (a quick bleeding of juice before fermentation) that has been utilized at Château Lassègue in Saint-Emilion. The wine’s name was inspired by vigneron Pierre Seillan, known as “Criquet” by his rugby team-mates, due to his small size and lightening quick reflexes on the rugby field.

The grapes for Pink Criquet are sourced from our Estate featuring old vine, noble Bordeaux varieties. The fruit comes from terroir composed of clay, limestone and sandy gravels which provides Pink Criquet good complexity and depth. This wine does not go through malolactic fermentation.

Pink Criquet Rosé can be enjoyed on its own, chilled, or alongside charcuterie, sushi, salmon and many other dishes. Pink Criquet is an especially versatile wine for brunch.
