Rosé de Loire

Rosé Wines - 2018

A dry rosé of the Loire Valley only made from local grapes.

Vineyard

The vines are located in Bellevigne-en-Layon (Faye d'Anjou and Thouarcé). The soils are made of clay and schist, which bring freshness and minerality to the grapes. This wine is made from four different local grapes: Grolleau (50%), Cabernet Franc (15%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Pineau d''Aunis (15%).



Harvest

The grapes are handpicked and put in buckets. They are then brought to the winepress by a dump truck vehicle. The hoist and vibrations mechanism of the truck allow the grapes to let down gently in the winepress.



Winemaking

Before the alcoholic fermentation in the stainless steel vat, we proceed to a skin maceration from the grapes with the juice for a few hours to let the tannins contained in the skin give the right colour to the juice. Then we go for the alcoholic fermentation and the ageing of the wine until the month of February, where the wine is bottled.

Duration: 2 to 5 years


Tasting

Dry rosé wine. Brilliant and lovely orange pink colour. Delicate flower notes on the nose as well as spices, brought by the Pineau d''Aunis. Fresh on the palate, with red fruits flavours and a peppery side at the end.

Tasting temperature: 12°C to 16°C
Sommelier's advice:

To be served between 8°C and 10°C. To be enjoyed as an appetizer or on summer cooking, Asian meals, pizzas or grilled fishes.
