This is an unusual red, made from vineyards in the Muscadet region: an area known almost exclusively for white wines, and made with Gamay. This is not, however, some shy and retiring light red that thinks it’s a white. No, this has guts like no other Gamay from this far north.
Dense fruits of morello cherries & victoria plums, with a satisfyingly full mid-palate, but none of the rasping acidity you find in less expensive Gamay’s. This wine has real attitude.
A blinder with sausage and mash with onion gravy, cauliflower cheese, haggis with neeps and tats, tuna steak or a big bowl of couscous with parsley, mint and tomatoes or raclette
