From: France, Val de Loire IGP
By: Olivier Cousin @ Domaine Le Batossay
A fresh Grolleau from the Domaine Le Batossay, in the Loire. The Domaine’s owner, Olivier Cousin has been keeping the spirit of traditional winemaking alive for many years, and is now handing over the reins to his son Baptiste – literally, as they still work the vineyards with horses.
The Domaine Le Batossay, near Anjou, grows a variety of grapes. The Grolleau and Gamay vines are now in the capable hands of Baptiste while his father tends his ‘favourite grape’, Cabernet Franc. The vineyard is biodynamic; no additives or sulphates are allowed to come into contact with the treasured grapes.
The grapes are manually harvested and matured for six months in vats. Light bodied, Grolleau OUeach can be enjoyed on its own or with red meats.
