Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose is a beautifully pale, salmon-coloured rosé. Elegantly fragrant, with aromas of wild strawberries, citrus and delicate floral notes. Round and creamy on the palate, with a refreshing acidity and silky smooth finish.
Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose is named after a lady who worked in the Languedoc vineyards during the late 19th century and became something of a local hero. At the time, it was largely women who worked in the vineyards; pruning and harvesting the vines. Sadly these women were often mistreated, over-worked and under-paid. Sophie fought for women’s rights and drastically improved working conditions for her fellow women in the vineyard in which she worked. Bijou is a tribute to her memory and we share her story on the back of every bottle sold. Our rosé is made from grapes sourced from handpicked bush vines, alike those that Sophie would’ve harvested herself many years ago.
