L'Espirit Détente Rosé
GAMAY - 2017
ORGANIC | LOW INTERVENTION
Bright, fresh, crisp. Everything you want for a go to rosé.
Third-generation winemaker Bernard had been working with his brother Jo in the heart of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine area, before moving in 2002 to the lesser-known and therefore cheaper area of Ancenis, (to the North-East of Nantes).
Initially his whole production was sold in bulk, but when eldest son Benoît returned in 2008 after his degree in viticulture and oenology, they started to bottle their own wine - organic conversion began in 2010.
They now farm around 25ha and moved to a ‘new’ cellar in the town of Oudon for the 2017 harvest. They have a mix of varieties planted, including Melon de Bourgogne, Folle Blanche, Pinot Gris, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2013 Benoît started making sparkling wines, producing a selection of lively and bright Pet-Nats.
