Silky tannins that recall some of the characteristics of the delicate cold-weather reds from the Jura. On the palate: a nice concentration of fresh red cherries, touches of licorice, and soft acidity and smoke on the finish. Pair it with roasted chicken, flavorful fish, or even grilled meats.
Hervé Villemade’s vineyards are located on the border of the Sologne woods in the western Loire valley. He is a master of Cheverny; his wines easily express the dense soils of his region. This clear blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir gives strong raspberry and kirsch notes all struck with a distinct earthy note and lots of foresty undergrowth. Evolving in the glass and opening easily, this natural wine is just a joy to drink. Serve it with herbed goat cheese and grilled poultry, or enjoy it on its own! Villemade ferments and matures his wines in large wooden vats. This wine was bottled with minimal sulfur.
