Producer: Château Pierre-Bise
Region: Loire Valley
Wine: 2012 Anjou-Gamay

When grown in the spilite soil unique to the village of Pierre Bise, the Gamay grape takes on a dimension rarely seen for this varietal. The soil, an ancient, compact, volcanic outcropping, is very tough to plow, but the roots of the vines manage to penetrate it and bring forth a heady and refreshing minerality to the resulting wine.

Dark, black fruit with flinty aromas lead into a full throttle red with ripe, tense tannins, great texture and refreshing minerality on the finish.
