La Brossette 2012 - Domaine de la Brossette, Touraine

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I found this organic wine really well made. I enjoyed its flavours of red berries and cherry blossom. We feel the talent when we feel the silky texture that only the best winemakers of Touraine achieve to get in their wines. There is also a little bit of bitterness in the finish, which shows the organic side of the wine. I suggest youpair it with a vanilla panna cotta with raspberry sauce. 

 

Terroir

With 4000 hectares, Touraine is one of the biggest appellations in the Loire Valley, and the estates there are usually pretty big. It is not the case of Domaine de La Brossette since it only covers three hectares, but locatedin the area known to give the best wines. The soil is a mix of sand and clay and the surface is covered with pebbles. This kind of soil guarantees to wine to remain healthy, therefore helping to make organic wines.

lecepage Grape variety

This cuvee is a blend of gamay and cabernet franc. It is a pretty common blend in the Loire Valley. Gamay comes from Beaujolais where it is still the main variety. And gamay is not any grape variety. Indeed, it has a rare specificity that is that its skin is black but its juice is white.

lemillesimeVintage

2012 is a really good vintage in Touraine. The vine grew fast thanks to a very sunny spring. The fact that it rained so little concentrated the grapes in sugar and organic acids. The summer was rather sunny, hence assuring a good maturity of the grapes. The harvest was pretty early with a really high level of concentration. The winemakers (and the wine lovers!) were then very hopeful that the wine would be great, and their hopes were not disappointed as you will taste it in a few minutes ! 

lerecoltantA winemaker, a family

In 2010, Marie and Thierry Delaunay, owner of the Domaine Delaunay, chose to buy three hectares of organic vines to their Japanese neighbour. As the estate was named after the Japanese winemaker, they had to change the name. It occurs that the estate was along the Rue de La Brosse, hence the name brossette that means hedgehog in casual French.
