Côme Isambert Cosmobulle Rosé

Regular price $32.00

Winemaker: Côme Isambert

Appellation: Loire Valley, France

Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Grolleau Gris

To make this pét-nat, Côme presses the Cabernet Sauvignon directly.  After a short maceration of a few hour, the juice from the Grolleau Gris and Gamay is drained off.  The wine is then aged in the bottle on the lees for several months before it was disgorged in July 2019.  15 g/L of residual sugar are left in the wine, which allows the secondary fermentation to take place to give it its bubbles!  This wine has some body to it, with a ruby red color.  It pairs well with roasted summer vegetables, pork, pizza, and could be fun with a cheese course!

Côme is a négociant-winemaker who has spent more than a decade working in the world of organic agriculture. He began to produce his own organic wines in 2013 in Saumur, producing around 6,000 bottles per year.

He buys his grapes from 4 different organic growers, and from there he manages everything- from the picking of the grapes to the bottling of his wines, not to mention the sales!

The grapes used are traditional in his part of the Loire Valley: Cabernet Franc and Grolleau are used for the reds (and for a sparkling rosé) and Chenin Blanc is used for his whites.

Côme's winemaking ability, in combination with the chalky and schist terroirs of Saumur, leads to wines that are a perfect representation of the outstanding potential and diversity that can be found in the Loire Valley!
