    Gourmandise d'un été 2016, Maison Rigal, IGP Comte Tolosan

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    « Gourmandise d’un été » is a very innovative and delicious version of Malbec! The fruit is ripe, a hint of flower adds refinement ; the finish is sweet, long and balanced with a little bitterness. The perfect rosé for just enjoying a glass with friends at sunset with a few olives. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Malbec is the grape variety with a thousand names. Malbec in Bordeaux, Auxerrois in Cahors or Côt in the Loire Valley : each region has its own name. Usually giving dark and tannic wines, it impresses us here by its clear dress and its delicacy on the palate. A really adaptive grape !

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The IGP Comté Tolosan, located in the Aquitaine area, is very well surrounded ! Bordered on the south by the Pyrenees, on the north by the Massif Central and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, the land is protected on every side. Moreover, sun is strong in this area: grapes are more than happy to get a little freshness from the ocean and the mountains.

    Comme un goût d'été 2016 , Lionel Osmin, IGP Côtes de Gascogne

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    French people are used to drink more rosé than white wine and the rosé is now drunk all year round. We clearly understand why when we taste this “rosé de gastronomie”, perfect for a dinner party or with a nice “apéro”. Both fresh and elegant, it will remind you the sweet flavours of summer and you will have the intense impression of crunching in a juicy white peach. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    A unique opportunity to taste the typical blend of Bordeaux’s finest reds but in a rosé ! You will find out the same structure as Bordeaux’s wines, and this same taste which combines aromas of red fruits with a vegetable touch that gives to the blend its grandeur. The Gascon terroir adds a touch of freshness, ideal for a perfect rosé experience !

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    From Jurançon to Cahors, from Gaillac to Bergerac and Marcillac, Lionel Osmin & Cie became a top name of the South West by creating in 2011 the first trading house that covers the entire South-West. Lionel launched this adventure in order to display proudly the superb terroirs of the vast South-West, as well through its typical grape varieties as the great grape varieties from elsewhere./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Located in the heart of Gascony, the vineyard benefits from the oceanic climate. Thanks to the proximity of the Pyrenees, the significant temperature variations between day and night is able to preserve fruity aromas. In fact, the production of sugars is stimulated during the warm period of the day whereas the natural acidity of the grapes is preserved during the cool period.

  4. Pineau d’Aunis 2015, Vignoble Dinocheau, Touraine

    Pineau d’Aunis 2015, Vignoble Dinocheau, Touraine

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Two words to describe this “vin gris” rosé : astonishing and refreshing ! Astonishing first as it is quite uncommon to be able to taste rosé exclusively made from pineau d’Aunis. This historical variety of the Loire Valley gives light and fresh wines with a lot of character. It’s a true gastronomy rosé with surprising yet seducing peppery and flowery aromas, but it still keeps this refreshing side that we crave for in a rosé. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Pineau d’Aunis is the most ancient variety in Loire Valley. Formerly called chenin noir, it was replaced through time by cabernet franc and is nowadays rather rare. Indeed, this one is mainly used to complete blendsand only a few winemakers use it to make single variety wines. It’s a pity as pineau d’Aunis gives very interesting and refined wines !

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Domaine Dinocheau is the typical small family estate where making wine is not at all a job but a real passion that burns in each member of the family. Indeed, the 13 hectares vineyard is ruled by Fabien and Laurence who are siblings. The family made a name for themselves by cultivating several abandoned varieties, like pineau d’Aunis and Orbois./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The 13 hectares of Domaine Dinocheau are planted on an underground of tuffeau stone, a blend of chalk and sand that looks white. Tuffeau, with which were built the Châteaux of the Loire Valley, is poor in nutrients : it enhances the expression of aromas low in number but powerful.
