Loire Valley Wines
The Loire Valley is France’s greatest source of value for anyone looking for elegant, terroir-driven wines. Our collection celebrates the region’s great diversity, with the mineral-driven whites of Muscadet and Sancerre, the beautiful Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs from villages like Vouvray and Chinon, and natural wines from everywhere in the region. Sometimes wonderfully fresh and gulpable, sometimes serious and age-worthy, the prices are always very reasonable.
This 2019 shows an elegant tannin structure. Medium body, delicate fruits and evolving in your glass after few minutes of opening. Gaining earthy power and roundness.
I recommend 20 minutes of decanting.
With a seasonal mushroom pasta, best pairing !
