Francois Cazin Cheverny Le Petit Chambord Rouge 2018
Pinot Noir/Gamay/Côt. Estate vines averaging thirty years old on clay-limestone soils, sustainably farmed and harvested by hand. The Pinot Noir is destemmed and macerated for a week, while the Gamay is whole-cluster fermented semi-carbonically; the small bit of darker, more tannic Côt, aka Malbec, adds a touch of color and structure. Stainless steel, no oak.

Wine SpectatorVery elegant, with a suave texture and soft notes of peach yogurt and salted butter that linger, while tarragon and wet stone details add interest. Mouthwatering. Drink now. 420 cases imported.
