Les Galipettes

« Les Galipettes » AOC Touraine rosé 2013


 

Les Galipettes is a rosé for springtime. Memories of collecting beautiful field mushrooms (Galipettes)amongst the spring flowers in the fields as a child are the inspiration for its name.The result of a directpressing of Gamay grapes, the bunches are fully mature when harvested giving a wine that is fresh and fruity but also has character and body. Les Galipettes is a speciality of the domaine, produced in very small quantities.

Henri Chapon : “And yes, it’s possible to make rosés, sparkling to the eye and with lovely sweet aromas elsewhere, not just in the South of France. In using really ripe Gamay grapes, Lionel has made here a fresh rosé, fruity and with intensity. This Tourainerosé has a beautiful colour coming from the maturity of the fruit. The nose is open and fruity, with aromas of jam and strawberry bonbons. The palate is supple, round and very aromatic. Notes of boiled sweets, ripe peaches and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is supple with an agreeable touch of softness, a very pleasant rosé. Its maturity and flexibility make it an ideal wine for summer aperitifs but also to accompany charcuterie and even to drink throughout a meal. Serve it between 11 and 13°C”
