FRANCE : LOIRE VALLEY : VIN DE FRANCE
Gamay, Côt (Malbec)
LIGHT-BODIED, RED FRUIT, PLUM, MULBERRY, LEATHER, EARTH, NO OAK
Another easy winner from the beloved “Boutanche” series — liter-size, “glou-glou” wines for everyday drinking created by some of the world’s best natural winemakers for the importer Selection Massale. Unsurprisingly, Minot’s version — a clean, gulp-able Loire Valley red — is a delight.
Organic & Low Sulfite
Pair With: Grilled Summer Vegetables with Tahini
France : Beaujolais
LIGHT-BODIED, RIPE RED BERRIES, CRISP, FLORAL, SAVORY, NO OAK
If this wine was an emotion, it’d be happy. Full of youth and airy berry aromatics, the nose is more than welcoming. The palate is fruity though light acidity teeters between notes of strawberry and savory cherry tomato. Touch of sweetness on the end, because, well... it is Beaujolais afterall.
