Domaine Grosbois Chinon 'Cuisine de Ma Mère'
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Cabernet Franc
Domaine Grosbois is an organic domaine run by two brothers, Nicolas and Sylvain. The vinification changes a little every year depending on what the harvest gives you, Nicolas says, and like a chef in the kitchen, you must react.
Cuisine de ma mère comes from vines planted in clay and sand. The grapes are destemmed and undergo a 5-day skin maceration, before fermentation and ageing in concrete. Light, lifted and fragrant with raspberry liquorice and violet aromas.
