Clos Kixhaya Grappes Me is a red wine that reflects the dedication and passion of Beatriz Papamija and Etienne Le Blanc. With only 4 hectares of Cabernet Franc in Chinon, this duo has shown that it is possible to create exceptional wines with limited resources, but with unrivalled passion.
Clos Kixhaya Grappes Me is a wine that stands out for its winemaking process. It is a sulphite-free wine that has undergone a 5-day whole cluster maceration. Despite its light appearance, Béa insists that it should not be confused with a rosé. In fact, she jokes that she scolds French cavists when they call it rosé, reaffirming that "It's not a rosé! It's a very, very clear red!" This wine expression has been eagerly awaited since Etienne presented a sample last summer. One year on, it is shaping up to be the wine of the early summer.
Clos Kixhaya Grappes Me is not just a wine to taste, but to enjoy. Its taste reflects its unique nature, being a light but characterful red. Béa's insistence on its distinction from a rosé suggests that it has a distinctive personality that defies traditional categories. It is a wine that promises to be fun and will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the palate.
