2018 Touraine Rouge "Fleur de Printemps" (Rochette, Domaine de la)

Domaine de la Rochette, Touraine Rouge "Fleur de Printemps", Loire Valley, France 2018

{sustainable} 60% Gamay, 40% Pinot Noir


The vineyards of Domaine de la Rochette are planted in the flinty, clay-rich soil along the banks of the River Cher in the heart of the Loire Valley. François Leclair and his son Vincent choose to combine traditional and modern methods to create truly special wines. This “Fleur de Printemps,” which translates to "Spring Flower,” is a beautifully soft and relentlessly fresh expression of both Pinot Noir and Gamay. The combination of bright fruit, persistent minerality, and gentle earth is a revelation.

Serving Suggestion: A red wine to enjoy with light fare! Scallops seared in brown butter served with a leek and potato purée and pan-roasted cremini mushrooms.
