The Wine Recommendations
2012 Les Hauts de Madon
|Where||Cheverny, Loire Valley, France|
|Grape||Pinot Noir, Gamay|
This perennial favorite of mine comes from the silica and clay soils of Les Hauts. The vinification is classic semi-carbonic and the result is gorgeous perfume and a joyous wine. Great acidity, velvet texture.
2012 Le Tel Quel Vet
|Where||Loir-et-Cher, Loire Valley, France|
|Grape||Grolleau, Gamay, Pineau d’Aunis|
As always, a beautiful little wine, and in the difficult vintage of 2012, it still succeeds. Tart yet velvet with a touch of licorice. Load up on this by the case to get your everyday wine on and never be bored.
