By purchasing our magnum-sized Inspiration rosé, you will be buying a generous amount of one of our best Château Virant rosé wines to share with your family and friends.

This wine was created by the Cheylan family as the point of union between trend and tradition. Its color and its citrus notes, called "thiols" by professionals, are signs of its modernity. Its dominant aromas of red fruits, green apple, and its powerful structure all bear witness to the qualities of a rosé that has stood the test of time.

The grape varieties used to make this wine indicate its high quality: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache.

This wine is one of the best sellers of the estate. Year after year, the Inspiration rosé wine reveals consistent taste qualities.

Pairings

Pleasant as an aperitif, this wine pairs well with Mediterranean dishes, such as marinated fish and grilled meats

Tasting advice

Remember that the magnum-sized bottle requires more time to come to temperature than a bottle of a classic size. Be sure to chill your wine to 12° C before serving. Use frozen glasses or porcelain ice cubes to create the optimal temperature.

Environmental distinction

Château Virant has an HVE 3 certification issued by the French government. This distinguished label is only obtained after having reached the highest level of environmental certification for farms. This label signifies sustainable production and practices with careful management of natural resources.
