Timothee Delalle, Grolleau de Cinq Mars 2022Regular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
Timothee Delalle is a new producer in the Loire Valley. He trained for years in Geneva, Switzerland as well as under the late Loire winemaker, Jacky Blot of Tailles Aux Loups and Domaine de la Butte. Home is a vineyard just west of the city of Tours and Vouvray in the Loire Valley. He makes just 8000 bottles of wine a year and they quickly sell out! He makes excellent examples of the standard varieties grown in the Loire. One of the most talked about winemakers in France at the moment, we clearly have much to expect still from Timothee Delalle. “My objective is to support winemaking rather than to control it.”
Grolleau is a forgotten grape of Touraine that’s recently seen a resurgence in planting as people fall in love with the wine all over again. The vines were planted in 1953!
