Touraine Rosé Les Cabotines
Blend: 80% Gamay + 20% Pineau D’Aunis
From: France, Touraine AOC
By: Thierry Delaunay @ Domaine Joël Delaunay
A perfect summer Rosé from the Delaunay’s family vineyard in the heart of the Loire Valley. The Delaunays have been farming here for five generations, and have been producing wine commercially for twenty years. Les Cabontines is created from a blend of Pineau Aunis and Gamay grapes.
Domaine Delaunay is currently being managed by its fifth generation son Thierry, who learned the art of winemaking from his father. The domaine, situated on the banks of the River Cher, enjoys a temperature climate and diverse geology, allowing them to create whites, reds and rosés. Thierry is a passionate winemaker who farms sustainably – only intervening when necessary and after careful consideration for the land.
