Made for easy-drinking, this red primarily made from Gamay and Grolleau is light, fresh and juicy with bright fruit and a light funkiness. Serve chilled.

Variety: Gamay, Grolleau, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard: Le Sot de L’Ange Estate Vineyard
Location: Loire Valley, France
Alcohol: 11-14%

Light, fresh and juicy with flavors of strawberry puree, forest floor and some funky yeast with a touch of acidity and light-medium tannins.

Hand-sorted before fermenting whole-cluster with indigenous yeasts in tank and a slow, gentle pressing. Wine undergoes carbonic maceration which lends a Coca-Cola style funkiness to this wine.

Quentin Bourse is the “Idiot Angel” of Azay-le Rideau in the Loire Valley, though he is anything but. He has worked with both natural and conventional producers over the years, most notably a six-month stage at the famed Vouvray producer, Domaine Huet. His estate sits on clay over silica soils and is certified biodynamic (a rarity in Azay-Le Rideau) and has been for ten years.
