Wine maker notes
“L’Etourneau” is a name locals use to describe the small swallow-like birds that feast on the grapes in this particular single-vineyard. This effort by Domaine Fouassier is sourced from a tiny 1 hectare estate-owned parcel with vines over 30 years of age. Low yields, certified organic farming, and non-interventionist winemaking create a truly special bottle. Drink immediately and over the next 12 months. Salmon in color, with an almost onion skin tint to the edge. Bouquet of strawberries, raspberries and redcurrant intertwined with citrus and floral aromas. This intense, well-balanced, light, crisp and juicy rose has bright acidity, good purity and a clean, dry finish. Compliments Loire Valley cuisine stalwarts like trout beurre blanc, pork rillettes, and goat cheese.

Today, our estate extends nearly 56 hectares from which 80% is from the noble and very old grape variety, called Sauvignon, and as for the rest, from the most delicate and elegant of red grape varieties, called Pinot Noir. We carry out a traditional cultivation, which combines the most ancestral methods passing by others from the biological or biodynamical culture and the most modern in terms of equipment. The key word of the property being the respect for the terroir, we do our best to respect the environment which is our tool and which represents the heritage that we will pass on to the next generations.
