Touraine Rouge "Les Linottes", Le Petit Roy 2018 (Loire, France)
In Touraine along the Cher river, Anne Cecile Roy has been running her family's winery since 2005 and continuing the tradition of no chemicals in the vineyard, native yeast and low sulfur. This is a classic Cheverny blend, but just outside of the area. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Gamay made all in tank. Silky red fruit with a lipsmacking finish. Nice with a chill, but can go either way.
