2018 Le Batossay Ouech Cousin
Oliver Cousin is a natural wine maker that has been sticking it to the man for many years in Anjou. And now it’s time to pass the (quite literal) reins over to his son Baptiste.
Back to the good old days of Ouech Cousin, an earlier picked and fresher example of this popular cuvee. Old vines of Grolleau macerated for 14 days and aged for 6 months in large format wood. Bottled in the spring with no adds.
Where: Loire Valley, France
How: Dark fruits, smokey and a bit of peppery spice, very food friendly
