Couverture Guide Hachette 2016 Hachette Coup de coeur et 2 etoiles

We are happy to announce that our first vintage Rochegrés 2013 has been elected “Coup de cœur” of Hachette Wine Guide 2016 and received 2 stars described as a remarkable wine.

Extract from Hachette Wine Guide:

« This ambitious cuvée has been aged 12 months in oak barrels. It gives it a noze of black fruits with delicates vanilla taste. In the mouth, the wood taste is perfectly assimilated, a full-bodied wine, deep and intense. Firm tannins gives it a good ageeing  potential. Tannins will get smoother with time. This wine gathers power and elegence.”

medal-300x300

In a number of countries, the main criterion for the selection of a wine is its grape. The objectives of the Gamay International Wine Challenge are simple: to select the best Gamay in the world and to show off the qualities, diversity and characteristics of this incredible grape variety; a wine which is fruity, easy drinking, slightly tannic, complex and gets better with age. Each year, a panel of one-hundred and thirty tasters, made up of wine experts and professionals judge six hundred samples. In 2015, la Maison Le Nid was awarded, to our great delight, a Silver Medal for our Cuvée Tradition 2013.
