Gamay de Touraine, Henry Marionnet, Loire
This Gamay has restless bouncing energy with sweet, perfumed, red berry fruit on the nose, vibrant red cherry and blueberry fruit and lovely freshness on the palate, yet also good concentrationfor a Gamay. It has lovely purity, is silky smooth, concentrated but not heavy. The bottle’s label suggests (demands) that you “server frais”, lightly chilled from the fridge.
Marionnet is generally considered to be the best exponent of this grape variety in the Loire. By picking late and discarding green grapes he achieves maximum ripeness which translates into fruitiness of the wine.
Organic methods in conjunction with old, ungrafted vines, no filtration, no sulphur, no
chaptalisation – purity from a grower whose wines are a true reflection of his love and passion for natural things.
This is a great light, summer red; great to serve with grilled sausages or salmon.
