Mary Taylor Sophie Siadou Valençay
The flinty soils of the Loire Valley appellation of Valencay are known for giving their wines a finesse, perhaps even a chalkiness. This cuvée is known as “Les Griottes” or ‘the cherries’ as its gentle flavor and character has notes of red fruits (cherry blackcurrant), with a hint of spices in the finish. Farmed sustainably and fermented with indigenous yeasts. You might try one of the area’s famed goat cheeses to pair with this classically elegant wine.
Grapes: Gamay, Pinot Noir, and Côt
Region: Loire Valley, France
