2020 Domaine Mosse Bisou

Bisou sold out very quickly in the last shipment because our customers recognised that this was an exceptional wine made by the Mosse Family that was interesting yet very drinkable.

It is light, has an exciting complexity from the mix of grapes used and is quite moorish.

Due to the bad weather in this area of the Loire Valley in 2020 and the resultant effect on the quantity of grapes able to be picked from their own vineyards, the grapes were bought from friends who tend their vines organically and consist of Grolleau Noir, Grolleau Gris, Gamay and Chenin Blanc.

The grapes were mainly grown in clay and pebbles over schist on vines approximately thirty years old.

The grapes were separately given a short maceration before being fermented and matured separately in barrels. The juice was combined one and a half months before being bottled. As a result, it has retained the freshness and drinkability of the previous vintage from 2019. This is a delicious wine!
