When fate strikes at the right time, a new wine is created. The "Cuvée Blanche" is the flagship wine of Vignoble Cousin.
The story of its creation is a little peculiar: it is one of those inventions that had a little helping hand from fate. Indeed, this vintage was first born from a problem in the vineyard.
It all began when Guy Cousin planted the Riesling-Silvaner, a white grape variety that produces a very sweet wine after drying the grapes. Unfortunately, very hot rains damaged the grapes. 80% of the harvest was attacked and the skin of the grapes turned brown. It was therefore impossible to dry the grapes but he noticed that the juice inside remained clean. He succeeded in making up for the problem by pressing and quickly extracting the juice. He then decided to assemble the over-ripe batch with the 20% of the harvest that remained intact. The blend was delicious and the "Cuvée Blanche" was born!
Subsequently, Guy improved the process and increased the aromatic complexity by adding other grape varieties. The "Cuvée Blanche" now represents a third of the Cousin vineyard's cellar.
It is a rather sweet wine that goes wonderfully well with festive moments: wedding guests love it as an aperitif, but it is also great after a long working day!
