Earthy with red fruit. Not incredibly dynamic. Drank k at Alta west Adams. This is the guy that trained the Drunken Goat winemakers in Berkeley

Light and lush yet grounded in sour minerals. A savory summer wine that can go bright when chilled or more earthy when left alone. So unique and versatile.

Chat Fou is a unique mix of both red and white grapes - primarily Grenache with about 15% Clairette; Viognier, and Chasselas. It’s like a cousin to a GSM but with a softer, lighter, touch - fresher and less dense. Floral aromas with brambly raspberry, spiced red cherry flavors, and wet granite. Mild tannins with medium high acid.

Very drinkable with a terrible movie on a rainy night, would be delicious with finer pairings.

A little lean and tart for me. I like the softer examples of this style. A little restrained and reductive.
