Hervé Villemade Vin de France Rosé is a lip-smacking blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay. A bright rosy hue in color with vivid fruit. Simple, fresh, and delicious.
Domaine Hervé Villemade is an estate of 25 hectares (17 of which are planted) located in Cour-Cheverny. It has passed from father to son from the installation of Hervé’s grandfather in 1939. Hervé took over the estate in 1995, after studying viticulture and winemaking.
In the late 90’s Hervé met Thierry Puzelat (who was then in his second year of organic viticulture) and tasted his wines as well as Marcel Lapierre’s Morgons and was struck by their purity. He decided to turn a couple of hectares organic just to check: no synthetic products, but ploughing and hand harvest instead, and also no-or very-little sulphur. The results proved to him that he should travel the non-interventionist path.
