2017 La Batossay ‘Ouech!’ Grolleau Magnum
Olivier Cousin has cultivated a very high-profile among natural winemakers in the Anjou. A lot of that has to do with a protest against wine labelling regulations a few years ago that ended up in the Angers courts and the international spotlight and almost saw him end up in jail.
Hi son Baptiste is equally iconoclastic. Since 2013, he now takes care of the Gamay, Grolleau, Pineau d’Aunis and Chenin Blanc at the family domaine, while Olivier continues working with the Cabernet Franc. The Ouech! Grolleau is pure joy in a glass. Light, fruity but with a lingering complexity. It’s party juice taken to the next level.
