Domaine Joel Delaunay, Touraine Rose 'Les Cabotines' 2016

 

Domaine Joël Delaunay is a family-owned estate, located in the Touraine AOC. Today, fifth generation owner Thierry Delaunay runs the domaine. Like his forward-thinking father, Joël Delaunay, who insisted on estate bottling in 1970, Thierry was the first Touraine producer to bottle under screwcap in 2004. Domaine Joel Delaunay has 34 hectares of vineyards, practising sustainable viticulture. 90% of their production is white, with Sauvignon Blanc being the predominant grape variety, and 10% is red, mostly Gamay and Cabernet Franc.

Pale salmon-pink. The nose opens with compelling scents of red berry fruits and floral notes. The same fruits recur on the palate, enhanced by a peppery touch. The palate is lively and tense with a silky texture. A vibrant, enjoyable rosé.

 

Grape Variety: 80% Gamay; 20% Pineau d'Aunis

ABV: 13%
