Joel Delaunay 2021 Rose "La Brossette" (Touraine) ORGANIC
La Brossette is the estate’s home vineyard, that Thierry cultivates organically, despite costs that he describes as being 3 – 4 times higher than his other vineyards. But the pay-off is in the incisiveness and energy of this wine (composed of 70% Gamay and 30% Cabernet Franc), whose fashionably pale colour disguises a wine of unexpected vinosity and thrust.

Tasting notes :
A bright and attractive pink colour in the glass. An endearing nose with aromas of raspberry and redcurrant. The palate is round and fleshy, with a savoury freshness, plenty of fruit concentration and a minerally finish. A very precise and racy rosé.
