Grower: Julien Courtois
Region: Sologne, Loire, France
Grape Varieties: Gamay Chaudenay
Viticulture: Organic
Size: 75cl bottle

This one is made from the almost-extinct Gamay Chaudenay grape, an old Loire heirloom varietal, its notable for being a red grape that actually has red juice inside its skins. The pitch black, deep colour here is not just from the skins. It hides a beautiful, taut, linear wine full of dark fruits and spice.
