Rosé de Loire Pure Loire, Famille Bougrier 2020
Rose Wine from France - Loire
Seldom has a Wine Champion been more aptly named: ‘Pure Loire’ is a pale, crisp, bright and breezy bottle of rosé from the Bougrier family’s talented Touraine team, and sure enough it’s as textbook an example of the style as one could hope for, not to mention utterly charming.

Maison Bougrier is a successful family-owned négociant company in the Loire founded in 1885 now run by the fifth generation of Bougriers. The company has significant domaine and winery holdings in three major areas: Touraine, Anjou and Muscadet giving it full control over vineyards, grapes and production in a number of sites.
The Touraine area produces whites from both chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. Bougrier’s premium white from Touraine is made from 100% sauvignon blanc grapes and was originally labelled for us as The Society’s Touraine Sauvignon, now sold under the Les Hauts Lieux label.
Domaine Guénault is one of the family’s own properties and situated on steep slopes overlooking the Cher river, which gives the grapes excellent sun exposure. The sauvignon here is grassy and scented and a popular choice as an aperitif.
