Timothee Delalle, Maceration 2021Regular price $25.00 Save $-25.00
Variety: Grolleau Gris
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.”
This wine is a maceration of Grolleau Gris, a variety that’s a mutation of the local Grolleau. Instead of orange, the wine takes on a coral hue. White wine with tannin!
