Inspiration Rosé Wine (Tradition)
Our Inspiration Rosé is one of the best Château Virant rosé wines to enjoy year round.
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.
Pleasant as an aperitif, this wine pairs well with Mediterranean dishes, such as marinated fish and grilled meats. It also nicely compliments gourmet dishes such as chicken with lemon and herbs.
Be sure to chill your wine to 12° C before serving. Use frozen glasses or porcelain ice cubes to create the optimal temperature.
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.
The Inspiration Rosé regularly wins awards in the national Vinalies competition. In 2018 it won the Prix d'Excellence (prize of excellence), and in 2020 it won a silver medal.
The jury for the Vinalies Nationales competition is made up exclusively of oenologists who note both the quality and the typicity of the wines submitted for tasting. Winning a prize in this prestigious professional competition is the assurance of being a recognized producer in the wine industry.

The Mondial du Rosé competition, organized by the oenologists of France, is an international competition that judges and rewards the best vintages. It is a competition mainly intended for catering and wine professionals which allows them to assess the quality of the wines of an estate on a global scale.
