Saignée – True “Blood”

Saignée – True “Blood”

Saignée literally means “to bleed.” The clearest definition I’ve found is by Dictionary Central which states that saignée is: “a rosé wine that has a dark pink color; used to describe the process of pressing grapes lightly and not using this lightest-coloured juice, allowing it to run off, and then pressing the fruit again and collecting the darker-coloured juice. The higher skin-to-grape juice ratio results in a darker and more full-flavoured wine.”
