Someone said natural. Think this is organic farming but I don’t think this is natural wine. Pierre Gauthier, almost 40 acres of Clay/Limestone Tufa in Benais outside of Bourgeuil. Probably just over $25-$30retail, $45-$60 on a wine list. Smoking good. The composite rating here is insanely low for the QPR. Everyone should be drinking these wines. This is a great wine in the grand scheme of things, it’s all about perspective. Entry level wine, the Jour de Soif has no oak, bright fruit, amazing green edge. There is a wet tobacco thing. Classic wine! Love it.

Nice Loire cab franc. Dry, earth, natty goodness. Good value.

Vegetable, velvety. Still glugger. Funky for a cab.

Decent bistro red. Graphite and green pepper with medium acidity. Needs air and a good chill.
