Vignoble Couillaud Gamay Rosé Val de Loire IGP 2015

Estate: The Couillaud family has been making wine for 7 generations in the Loire Valley. Brothers Bernard Michel and François Couillaud, along with Bernard’s daughter Amelia, head the estate. Known for their elegant wines, the family believes this finesse is a reflection of the terroir and their “strong personalities”.

Winemaking: Sustainable and organic viticulture is practiced. Soils are a mix of mica schists [which contribute towards the “freshness and finesse” their wines are known for], shale and clay.

Tasting Notes: Pale coral-pink in colour with inviting aromas of rhubarb, strawberry, white flowers, minerals and a wink of funk. Agile and zippy with strawberry and floral notes buoyed by an undercurrent of tart fruits. Rain-washed slate minerals and clean grapefruit comprise the dry, refreshing finish.
