100% Grolleau from Anjou in Loire Valley
Julie and Toby Bainbridge 'Cuvée La Danseuse'
Toby, from England, met Julie, from Oklahoma, while studying commercial agriculture. They are of the new generation in the Loire Valley – that is, the one that is doing things the old way. Biodynamic farming, hand harvesting and bottling by hand harken back to tradition. They are exciting and inspiring to know and work with –it is almost as if you can taste their enthusiasm in their wines.
An almost lighter-than-air delight -- this is a dry, sparkling take on Rosé d'Anjou that is bursting with life. Minerally, elegant, and lively: nearly-ripe strawberries meets perfect acidity!
