Not normally a "first choice" wine for me but this had wonderful notes of white pepper, cranberry, rhubarb, and forest floor. A little savory,earthy and fruity made this a great choice for Thanksgiving turkey along with all the side dishes. Easy drinking and delightful with food.

The new 2013 vintage surpasses the last. More ripe bramble fruit on the taste with the spice and meatiness dominating the aromas. High acidity, but rounder and more fun than a Chinon. If you are a fan of Loire wine at all, check this one out now. 2013 Vintage.

Gamay at its Loire very best!! Juicy, full and loaded with minerals and dust. A perfect rarity on a rare (somewhat) wintry Houston evening. Importer Jon-David Headrick.
