Domaine de la Chaise, Touraine Rosé (2018)

Geography: Loire Valley, France
Appellation: Touraine
The Davault family has been producing wine for six generations. Christophe took over the family business in 2004. Domaine de la Chaise is composed of 57 hectares (140 acres) of vines located on the hillsides of Saint Georges sur Cher. The vines grow tuffeau-rich soils, they rarely suffer from excess water stress and benefit from dry, free-draining soils.
Catch the Craze for La Chaise! This Loire Valley Rosé is different & delicious. A unique blend that is rarely found outside the Loire, check this out as a more easy and soft alternative to the Provence style.
A blend of 50% Gamay, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Pineau D’Aunis, and 10% Grolleau.
A  crisp and aromatic rose with hints of summer fruits. The northerly climate of the Loire gives a delicate refreshing acidity. An ideal wine to enjoy on its own – especially on a warm summer’s day. Also delightful with a picnic, grilled fish or fresh summer fruits.
