Now on their eighth generation of winemaking, the Gambier family are right at home making Cabernet Franc in Bourgueil. They use a local variety called Breton that has grown in the Loire Valley since the 12th Century - a point of pride for the family and the region. Although the Gambier brothers produce mostly red wines, this rosé is an exception. Careful attention is paid to the entire process to emphasize the unique terroir of their 17 hectare vineyard. All the fruit in this wine was raised in gravelly soil, which produces a softer expression. Half of the wine is made using saignée method with the other half directly pressed. Low temperature fermentation happens for a month in order to preserve aromatics. Nice bouquet of red fruit, flowers, and herbaceous notes. Flavours of citrus and strawberry on the palate. Fresh and crisp mouthfeel with good acidity and length. Pair with oysters, shellfish, and fresh fish.
This wine is exclusive to Marquis Wine Cellars.
