Siblings Ludivine and Rodolphe Marteau bought and took over their family’s estate from their parents in 2010, before either of them had turned 30. Rodolphe makes the wine, while Ludivine manages the sales and marketing. The 29 hectares of their estate lie on the south bank of the Cher river, well situated in the heart of Touraine. Light-hearted Lulu presents the freshness and minerality of the Loire Valley in a relaxed and fruity way: perfect for an afternoon picnic or farmhouse dinner with friends. One third of the harvest macerated on the skins, adding smoothness to the texture of the completed wine, which aged on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks before bottling. Waves of passionfruit and grapefruit lead to a pithy, peppery finish. Sustainably grown.
