Villemade Rosé is back with a bang! This year the blend is 80% Pineau d'Aunis and Pinot Noir. And at 10.80% ABV, it is the perfect Terrace Rosé! Delicious delicate red berries, stone fruit, lifted by a gentle spice; it is incredibly more-ish
DOMAINE HERVÉ VILLEMADE, Cour-Cheverny
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 tasted his neighbour Thierry Puzelat’s wines (who was then in his second year of organic viticulture) as well as Marcel Lapierre’s Morgon 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 no-or very-little sulphur. The results proved to him that he should travel the non-interventionist path. Hervé’s wines carry a trademark purity of fruit, the wines are fleshy, honest, generous and articulate.
