Estate: Founded by Alfonse Delecheneau at the end of the 19th century, La Grange Tiphaine is located in the Loire Valley of central France. Today the estate is headed by the 4th generation of the Delecheneau family, Damien. Since 2008 his wife Coralie has joined him at the helm. The 15 hectares of vineyards are certified organic and spread across 2 appellations; Touraine Amboise and Montlouis sur Loire. Damien has become known for his “scientific precision to natural winemaking”, crafting “balanced, terroir driven wines”. For more details on Damien, check out the estate’s bio page on their US importer’s site [jenny & françois selections], here.
Winemaking: The estate is organic and natural. Grapes are from vines 80 years in age, in clay and silica over limestone. Their goal with ‘Rosa, Rosé, Rosam’ was to craft a “natural sparkling rosé wine simply refreshing & fruity”.
Tasting Notes: Copper pink in colour with aromas of biscotti, honey, cherry and clay minerality. Candied orange, cherry, pomegranate and clove are accented by citrus acidity. Compact fizz is consistent thru to the dry, fruity finish. Fruity and fun, super gluggable.
