Vin de France (Loire)
Bruno Rochard Les Coteaux Kanté is an organic and natural, barrel-aged red wine made with the Grolleau variety in the French region of Loire by the Domaine de Mirebeau winery.
Renowned winemaker Bruno Rochard took over Domaine de Mirebeau in 1998 and the first thing he did was turn all the vineyards organic. This work has allowed him to achieve maximum expression of the soil mainly with the Chenin, Cabernet Franc and Grolleau Noir native varieties.
Bruno Rochard Les Coteaux Kanté comes from one of the old Grolleau variety vines in the Loire. These are rare vines that date back to 1921 and grow on gravel and clay soils. An authentic wine jewel that Rochard has learned how to cultivate through organic and ecological practices that do not harm the vine’s natural balance. The harvest is carried out manually and placed in small boxes.
When the grapes reach the winery, they are destemmed and the Bruno Rochard Les Coteaux Kanté winemaking process begins with spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts. Finally, it ages in barrels for several years and the wine is bottled without filtering or adding sulphur.
Bruno Rochard Les Coteaux Kanté is a rare wine that is named after the Malian musicians who came to help with the harvest on the estate in 2005.
