2016 Marigny-NeufVal de Loire0,75l RoséBio€8.09 €6.69A rosé made from 60% Gamay, 20% Cabernet and 20% Pinot Noir grapes, grown in Vienne between the Loire Valley and Poitiers. This is an organic wine, produced with great care including two days cold maceration followed by five months ageing on the fermentation lees to add roundness and complexity to the wine. A fun loving wine with notes of guava, red currant and cherry with a creamy texture, this rosé loves being paired with salads, pizza and sunny aperitifs accompanied by big smiles and giggles. Serve chilled and enjoy now or for the next two years.
In this column, several of us at Thienpont Wine will tell you what we have been drinking and how the wines tasted including trying to give you an update on how a wine is aging.
