WINEMAKER: Agnès, René, Sylvestre & Joseph Mosse
VARIETAL: Grolleau Noir, Grolleau Gris, Gamay, Chenin Blanc
REGION: Loire Valley, FR
"Bisou sold out very quickly in the last shipment because our customers recognised that this was an exceptional wine made by the Mosse Family that was interesting yet very drinkable. It is light, has an interesting complexity from the mix of grapes used and is quite moorish.
Due to the climate change induced bad weather experience in this area of the Loire Valley in 2020 and the resultant effect on the quantity of grapes able to be picked from their own vineyards, the grapes were bought from friends who tend their vines organically and consist of Grolleau Noir, Grolleau Gris, Gamay and Chenin Blanc.
The grapes were mainly grown in clay and pebbles over schist on vines that are approximately thirty years old.. The grapes were separately given a short maceration before being fermented and matured separately in barrels. The juice was combined one and a half months prior to being bottled. It has retained the freshness and drinkability of the previous vintage from 2019. " - Living Wines

We're always grateful to receive small quantities of these highly sought-after wines.
