About. This crémant rosé comes from a tiny, ten-person team winery with a 50-year history. The head of the family business, Philippe Carretero (an engineer-enologist), has led this team for about 30 of the 50 years Chateau Sicot has existed. Compared to many of the wineries around the world and even in Bordeaux, this Château is small. It may be because of their size that they’ve managed to successfully (& quickly) commit and convert their vineyards to organic farming, achieving ECOCERT certification in 2009.
Achieving an organic certification is time-consuming and expensive, but the benefits far outweigh the costs. They’ve seen the life of their soils strengthen, preventing erosion & the deterioration of microorganisms vital to keeping the ground healthy. Their vines have become healthier and more resistant to disease, resulting in better fruit, which yields better wine!
