Anjou Rouge "La Quillette", Thomas Boutin 2018 (Loire, France)

This is a blend of 60% Gamay, 20% Grolleau and 20% Cab Franc from organic vineyards in Anjou, fermented whole cluster with native yeast for 8 days, then pressed off to vats where it ages on the lees for 9 months before getting bottled unfiltered with just a little sulfur added at bottling. Juicy and bright with vibrant red fruit and crushed flowers. Nice with a little chill, but can go either way.
