Rosé wine is produced from red grape varieties. If, by virtue of their colour, aromas and structure, rosé wines appear as a blend of white and red, they do not come from a mixture! Moreover, in France, it is strictly forbidden to mix red wine with white wine to produce rosé wine.
The only exception authorised in France concerns Champagne. Most rosé Champagne is made by blending a small quantity of red wine with the rest of white Champagne wine, which is then "champagnisé".
