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

Number of wine boxes of 6 bottles to add to basket:

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. 

 

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.

lecepage 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 !

lemillesime Vintage

2016 is a great vintage ! The spring was hot and dry, allowing early flowering. Grapes were able to ripen quickly and well. Summer was also very sunny, but not too hot. The berries reached perfect maturity, giving juicy wines with ripe fruit. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Created in 1755 in Cahors, Maison Rigal has developed a unique know-how around the Malbec. Cedric, the winemaker, explores all its nuances on all the most beautiful terroirs of the Southwest. Whether it is vinified in red or rosé, Rigal brings out the best of this typically Southern grape variety. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did !
