' Quintessential - Maison Bouey Oh La Vache! Rouge

Famille Bouey Oh La Vache! Rouge 2020


This easy-drinking wine has a brilliant ruby-red color, with purple reflections. Aromas of ripe strawberries, blackberries and Morello cherries fill the glass. The palate is well-balanced, with supple and velvety tannins and copious red fruit.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
L’Atlantique is a wine appellation that encompasses Bordeaux, Southwest Cognac and, more precisely, the regions of Medoc, Graves, Entre-deux-mers, Sauternes, Libourne, Blaye- bourg, Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderie, Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Bois Ordinaire.

The 2020 vintage brought together the best conditions for an exceptional, high-quality wine. Both traditional and modern winemaking techniques were employed, with the wine aged in French Oak vats in order to preserve, as much as possible, the fresh and fruity aromas.

Interesting Fact
Bordeaux winemakers since 1821, the Famille Bouey are very proud of the eco-responsible “Oh La Vache!” wine, that is produced with the utmost respect to biodiversity. Certified High Environment Value (HEV) Level 3, the wine is bottled in recycled and refined glass, its label is produced from cane sugar fibres, and its cork comes from sustainable forests. This wine is made to be enjoyed...and then returned to the terroir.

Serving Hints
This wine pairs well with dishes like eggplant parmesan or pulled-pork sliders.
