One of the more unique backgrounds, the Lieubeau family came to be by fate. In 1816, Joseph Grégoire Lieubeau, had been left on the steps of the local hospital in Nantes. Not knowing his real name, those who found him blessed him with a fortunate name, meaning “beautiful place”. He was raised by a local family who happened to be grape growers, and years later he eventually established his own domaine. Today, it is run by his descendants Pierre, Chantal and their children François, Vincent and Marie. They produce some of the most polished wines in the western Loire. Their Joseph Grégoire Lieubeau range is a tribute to their family’s founding father. Their 2019 rosé is fresh and juicy with notes of peach, cherry blossom, pear and candied almonds.
Robin says "A delicious easy-going rosé which remains fairly light in colour and which is made with a blend of Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Grolleau Gris. A lesser known, deep pink coloured grape from the Loire, Grolleau Gris is perfect for their regional rosé.
