Delicious, thirst-quenching, low-intervention/“natural” goodness from the middle Loire; it’s designated Vin de France but I’m pretty sure the fruit comes mostly from Touraine. Blend of Gamay and Grolleau, not sure of specific percentages. Bright, tangy red fruits underscored by a subtle floral bitterness.

- Color: medium (-) intensity ruby hue
- Nose: pomegranate, cranberry, wet stones and tilled dirt, fresh roses and violets, fines herbes
- Palate: slightly underripe raspberry, cranberry, wet stone minerality, thyme, rose petal, and interestingly a tiny bit of a guava-esque character.
- Acid: medium (+)
- Tannin: medium (-), very fine grained
- RS: bone dry
- Alcohol: medium, not at all intrusive
- Body: light/medium (-), great texture
