2021 La Valse
Laurent is originally a chef from Brooklyn!
Although born and raised in France, Saillard used to pour wines at his bar in New York! Now he makes them in the Loire Valley. He began his career in winemaking working with Didier Barouillet & Catherine Roussel of the Clos Roche Blanche winery. He began his first solo vintage in 2012 and has never looked back. Laurent’s wines are carefully thought out, constantly observed and precise. No chemical sprays and everything done by hand, Sailard looks to create wines that can age but also have maturity beyond their years. Pineau d'Aunis is one of our favourite grapes here at DRNKS. La Valse, is Pineau d'Aunis rosé from 28 year old vines grown on clay and flint. How good! Direct press, fermented in stainless and bone dry. Think crunchy red fruit, touch of spice and a fresh dry finish. Mes compliments au chef.
