Delightful, fresh rose crafted from the native Loire variety, Pineau d'Aunis. The wine is fermented entirely in stainless steel.

Jean-Marc Villemaine operates his family winery with his wife and two teenage sons who hand pick all the grapes. Their estate consists of 18 hectares of flint and clay soils. Practicing the "Terra Vitis" approach to agriculture, a holistic style in which great care and concern is given to maintaining a natural balance between flora and fauna, Jean Marc produces wines of intensity and purity.

The Touraine appellation sits in the heart of the east-west Loire Valley, mid-way between Orleans and Brittany's coastal city of Nantes. Within the boundaries, to the east lie the great Cabernet Franc vineyards of Chinon, Bourgueil and St Nicolas de Bourgueil. To the west, the Chenin plantings in Vouvray and Montlouis draw international attention. The greater appellation of Touraine has a diverse wine portfolio, allowing many varietals (notably Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc, and the Pineau D'Aunis that goes into Villemaine's rose) in its bottlings. The soil is primarily sand, clay and limestone. While wine styles change as you follow the river, they are made to display freshness and relatively high acidity with oak rarely being used.

This has become our favourite summer wine, just don't keep it in the refrigerator, which is too cold and which will diminish the flavour.

The underlying flavours include pluot, white pepper, and wild strawberry. Perfect during the blistering hot days... More
