Joel Delaunay 2022 Rosè 'Le Grand Ballon Selection'

Pale but definite pink wine artfully blended from Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt to a delightfully sprightly effect. It sports that inimitable Loire tension between fruit, acidity and earth components. Unusually characterful in this vintage.

Notes from the Producer: Brillant, salmon pink hue. Spicy nose of red currants, strawberries and raspberries. Well balanced, lively yet supple and creamy on the palate.
