Rose d'Un Jour 2019
It is 100% Grolleau Gris, an ancient variety from Anjou-Touraine. The whole clusters are pressed in a large coquard press and then fermented in steel. The wine is bottled only 2 weeks after harvest.
Exuberantly bright pink in color, it smells of wild strawberries, hibiscus tea and has good spice. The 2019 is brighter than previous vintages, faithfully reflecting the sunny trend of the vintage. This is why it also has 70gr/lt residual sugar, which makes it sweetish and also perfect for desserts, such as fruit tarts, or very fragrant and sweet-and-sour Asian-style cooking.
Very interesting wine that we absolutely recommend you try. High aging potential.
Ferme de la Sansonnière
Mark Angeli is a formidable "paysan-vigneron" operating in the Loire Valley, in the Anjou area. If we had to choose one character can embody the wine revolution in the Loire area, it would undoubtedly be Mark whose agricultural vision has steered so many vignerons toward a "natural" philosophy.
A chemistry student turned stonemason, Mark fell inexorably in love with wine to the point of choosing to change his life. Moving to Anjou in 1989, he set out to find land to develop his ideal vision of agriculture. In Bonnezeaux, he fortunately came across the Ferme de La Sansonnière-a historic and polycultural property-it was the opportunity he had been waiting for. After purchasing the property, he immediately converted the farm to biodynamic agriculture, but he did not stop there by trying to establish a virtuous system in all farm processes, suffice it to say that he uses only photovoltaic panel solar electricity and a tractor running on sunflower oil that he himself grows.
It sounds like talking about a pure dreamer, but he is considered, even nationally, one of the best producers in this region.
