Made by the Negotiant House of Maison de Luze, founded by Baron Alfred de Luze, Grand Duke of Hessen, this is a lovely Rose wine. The Baron’s pioneering spirit back in the 1820s lead to him settling his wine merchants in Bordeaux at the heart of the Quai des Chartrons facing the River Garonne. Thanks to his far sightedness and foreign trade links he helped forge the reputation of Bordeaux wines today. Nowadays Maison de Luze specialises in maturing and selling the great wines of Bordeaux and old Cognac eaux de vie worldwide.
Fleur de Luze Rose is a clear, pink peony colour and can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with a variety of dishes and appetizers. It’s particularly good with ham, gammon, prosciutto/pancetta and chorizo; as well as with tomato topped dishes such as pizza or bruschetta. Thanks to its body and balance it also pairs well with lightly spiced Indian cuisine cooked with yoghurt.
