2018 Le Batossay Marie Rose Grolleau Gris Rosé

Loire Valley, France

A beautifully dark and mysterious rosé from Baptiste Cousin. It could pass as a light red, teeming with flavour and full raspberries, cherries and slightly herbaceous. Light and easy drinking. Olivier Cousin is an esteemed winemaker in the Loire, producing precise and small batch Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Grolleau. Now his son, Baptiste, is in charge of the Grolleau and the evolution of these lovely wines continues.

About the maker

Le Batossay (Baptise Cousin) is tended to by son of esteemed vigneron, Oliver Cousin, who has passed on most of the vineyard management and winemaking, but still mentors him through his early years to continue the lineage of incredible Loire wines.

The spirit of Oliver remains throughout the vineyard, working the vines with horses and biodynamic preparations, with no added sulphur or any other additives ever coming in contact with the wine. The wines possess elements of wilderness, natural purity not only unique to their parcel, but also represent a step up in the evolution of precisely made natural wines. The varieties that Baptiste tends to are Gamay, Grolleau, Chenin Blanc and Pineau d’aunis.
