Domaine Landron Chartier Gamay Toujours
The Gamay Toujours from Landron Chartier is a fun and deliciously sumptuous Gamay from the Pays Nantais of the Loire Valley near the vineyards of Muscadet. The region is cool and fresh and the wines reflect it. The nose is mineral-driven with strawberries, red fruits, and fuji apples cascading out of the glass along with blackberries, rhubarb, a hint of fruit punch! The palate is light, fresh, and fruity. It is an absolute no brainer to have on a hot day with a slight chill. It pairs with all sorts of foods; grilled burgers, charcuterie, or steak frites.
