Chais Saint-Laurent ‘La Vigne en Véron’ Chinon Rosé 2015

A second label from famed Negociant Foucher-Lebrun, this is a fantastic value for summer sipping.

Producer: Founded in 1921 by Paulin Lebrun, Foucher-Lebrun is a “Petit Negociant” specializing in wines from the Loire Valley. Chais Saint-Laurent is their second label. In 2009 fine and rare wine broker Jean Mounard joined the company managing “the selection process for the wines of the company”. His large network of wine growers and winemakers has increased the quality, along with being able to offer wines that “display a real sense of their underlying appellations and are made with a balance and delineation usually found in much more expensive wines”.

Philosophy: “To convey the expression of the appellations in the Loire region by careful selection, vinification and aging of its wines”.

Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from multiple vineyards in the Touraine region of the Loire Valley.

Tasting Notes: Coral pink in colour with aromas of summery strawberry and minerals. Super fruity with refreshing tart strawberry and raspberry flavours. Zippy citrus zest and clean minerals comprise the dry finish. Easy drinking and simple, this is a fantastic patio sipper.
