Thibaud Boudignon, Rose de Loire 2020Regular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
Variety: Cabernet Franc and Grolleau
Thibaud Boudignon is making some of the most exciting wines in the world today. Committed to strict organic practices, Boudignon calls upon his experience making wine in Burgundy and at the historic Chateau Soucherie to steer his own tiny property in the heart of Anjou and Savennieres to great heights. He has quickly become a darling of the Loire and beyond garnering the attention of top restaurants in Paris, NYC, and beyond. It is rare and tricky to find rockstars in the world these days as so much has been discovered—prices skyrocket to auction levels and only end up in Michelin-starred restaurants.
This rose continues to impress every vintage. It is full of saline minerality with a fresh juiciness that needs to be drunk now. This wine combines Cabernet Franc with the Loire’s lesser known variety called Grolleau. It is a direct press rose, but made like a white wine. This will be a go-to during the warm months.
