Fun and bright. No green notes on the palate which were mildly noted on the nose.

Good minerallity and acidity, green pepper characteristics. A little too tannic for such a lite body though. Needed to age a few years.

Still drinking well, big acidity up front. Fruit slightly faded and green notes are minimal. Paired well with rabbit confit with grits

Well, why not...since the WSJ seems to have discovered Loire CF I thought digging in the cellar for this perfect mid-week tipple. Imported by Kermie Lynch in Bizerkley CA. Plenty of cellaring to go if you like more evolution. Still primary in flavor and aroma.

Verrrry light. Pretty. Tart cherry, lingonberry. Light green peppercorn. Not your typical muscular bourguiel.
