Philippe Delmée | "Ni Rouge Ni Blanc" | 2018
CHENIN + GROLLEAU - 2018
Not rosé not red, pure juice and pure joy in a bottle.
Philippe Delmee was a maths teacher who was tired of the constraints of the classroom - he made the move to winemaking in 2006. After studying for two years, he started working with Benoit Courault and Domaines des Griottes, and Benoit helped him find a one-hectare parcel in Faye d’Anjou. He farms around 6ha across 16 parcels around Faye d’Anjou and Faveraye; the soils are mostly porous sand and schist with only a little clay. The vines are a mix of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau and some Pineaud'Aunis.
Sulphur is only added in the pied de cuvee for each wine.
