French. Red. Loire.
Cheverny, Domaine de Montcy Red 2010
Domaine de Montcy was born from the agricultural background of Laura Semeria who grew up in Italy amidst the olive groves. After moving with her husband to his home country of France, Laura was drawn to the grapes. In the far corner of the Upper Loire, she found a vineyard. Some of the vines still bearing fruit were over 100 years old. Laura is striving for total biodynamic production. Grown in the sandy-limestone, the grapes express this mineral foundation. This rustic red table wine is a blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Only native yeasts are used and temperatures are kept low to insure freshness remains inherent in the wine. With aromas of cherry and cranberry on the nose leading to raspberry and strawberry on the palate, this wine is simple, straightforward and, while it can stand alone, is abundantly food friendly.
