Description

loire roseLoire Rose has its own appellation – Rose de Loire – which falls across the Anjou, Saumur and Touraine vineyards of the Loire Valley. Raymond Morin’s Rose de Loire vineyards lie at his estate Domaine du Landreau in Anjou on dark shale soils. The Loire’s grapes flourish here and Morin’s Rose is a carefully balanced combination of the Loire’s native Rose grape Grolleau and Cabernet Franc and Gamay – both of which have found second homes in this lovely terroir. Gamay’s trademarks here are vivacious fruit driven wines with notes of strawberry and violets; Cabernet Franc lends structure and power with notes of raspberry and pepper whilst Grolleau adds acidity with notes of morello cherry and mint.

lr glassGetting the perfect fusion of these grapes in a wine is a tricky task but Morin is a master blender and his wines are multi award winning. This lovely Loire Rose has won the silver medal in the Concours de Ligers 2015 competion. His family have exceptional holdings across the Loire with ideal conditions for grape growing; including Domaine la Jalouise in Chinon and Domaine La Chevalerie in St Nicolas de Bourgueil. The Morin family are much respected in the area for their expertise in the different styles of Loire wines and Raymond is the fourth generation to take the helm.

Being well structured Morin’s Rose de Loire is not only a lovely glass of wine to enjoy on its own but also pairs with appetizers and nibbles; salads (especially Nicoise), quiche, soft cheese (try it with goats cheese!) poultry and fish, white meat pizzas, Mediterranean and Indian cuisine, duck in orange sauce and dark chocolate desserts.
