Rocket Wine


• Flavor profile: Look at this deep rubis juice...prepare for a mouthful of dark, juicy red fruits. Blackcurrant jam followed by the blackest cherry picked from the highest branch of the tree, still warm from the sun, and finally some spice and wood, star anis, liquorish. This wine will not let itself overpowered by a blue cheese or Deichkäase Edel, so dare to pair please !

• Origin: France - Loire

• Grapes: Gamay

• Process: Embracing an ethos of minimal intervention, this wine is produced from Gamay grapes grown on clay soils with small flints, underlain by a tuffeau (limestone) bedrock. The vines, a mix of older and some younger parcels, are tended with utmost care, without any mechanization. All vineyard work, including ploughing by horse and manual labor, reflects a deep commitment to traditional and sustainable viticulture. The wine is crafted to express its natural essence without the addition of sulfites, capturing the purest expression of Gamay.

• About the producer: Huit-Launay is a small, artisanal estate spanning just over 3 hectares, primarily dedicated to Chenin vines in the Vouvray appellation and a small production of Gamay for Vin de France. With a philosophy rooted in manual labor and minimal mechanization, the vineyard operations are painstakingly carried out by hand and horse, emphasizing a deep connection to the land. The estate’s approach to winemaking is guided by the principle of allowing nature to take its course, resulting in wines that are a true reflection of their terroir and the vintage. Huit-Launay stands as a beacon for those seeking wines crafted with respect for tradition and the natural environment.
