Blend: 100% Gamay
From: France, Val de Loire IGP
By: Thierry Delaunay @ Domaine Joël Delaunay
A light fruity red from the gentle hills of the Loire Valley. The Delaunays have been farming their land on the banks of the River Cher for five generations, and farming commercially for two. Touraine Gamay should be drunk young and lightly chilled.
The vineyard on the bank of the River Cher enjoys a temperate climate and a diverse mix of soils, enabling the Delaunays to produce a number of wines, each made with knowledge and passion. The vineyard is currently run by Thierry Delaunay, who succeeded his father Joel 20 years ago. The grapes for the Touraine Gamay are manually harvested; the wine is filtered and fined.
