Domaine du Bois Joly is a family estate with 30 hectares of vines between 30 and 60 years old. It is located in Pallet, 20 kilometers southeast of Nantes in the heart of Sèvre and Maine. They work with respect for nature and the wine is certified organic (Certified High Environmental Value III level, or Environment Management System).

The Olympe Brut is the flagship of Bois Joly. Made according to Méthode traditionnelle, so with a double fermentation and exactly as a champagne is made. The Olympe Rosé is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from an old field vineyard with many mixed grape varieties. This mix of grape varieties in 1 vineyard is currently very popular again because the diversity ensures a healthy vineyard, but also ensures that the right mix can be made because of the different ripening moments. So, for example, one can nicely blend an aromatic or ripe grape with a grape that is even more just ripe and thus get a much better balance in the wine. Currently Telmo Rodriguez is a good example, with his 100 Parker points of wines, he proves that this method (which was quite normal in the past) leads to great wines. The organically cultivated vineyard is located on a schist soil and gives the Olympe Rosé a nice extra minerality as an encore. The grapes have matured for 12-16 months in used oak barrels and are fermented on their natural yeasts (spontaneous fermentation) so the chemistry box is not used here and the wine is then, like all Bois Joly wines, made completely organic.

The Olympe Brut Rosé has a beautiful light bright pink color in the glass with a very fine elegant perlage. The wine is very expressive with fruity and harmonious aromas. The taste, strong and smooth at the same time, leaves a feeling of fullness that makes it very glamorous. This "Loire champagne" is extremely complex with many layers. As with the Blanc, the wine first opens with some yeast notes and a mineral touch. The red fruits give a fruity nose that extends to a full and balanced sensation in the mouth. Also in this "Loire Rosé Champagne", the fruit is very fresh and dominated by red currant, sour cherry and strawberry. Dare to put this bottle next to a (much more expensive) rose champagne in a blind tasting and judge for yourself. This is really a lot of (festive) wine for the money.
