Super weird blend of Gamay, Cab Sauv, and Malbec from Loire. The wine itself isn't as interesting as the grapes in it though. It's crisp and dry with tart fruit and minimized mineral tone.

My first experience with Pineau d'Aunis - makes for a nice fruity Rosé with a dry finish. Quite a bit of acidity.

Flowers and strawberry nose. So pretty! Soft palate. But there's some mineral. I wish it was Rose season outside.
