Keep it natural, baby.
This also has a bit of Côt (Malbec) in it. Clean, stainless steel aged, gulp-able Loire red. Starts off with red flowers, red plum, cherry skin, mulberry, and black pepper, then crisp red fruit flavors with savory spice and a leathery, earthy finish.
Hipster wine, version 2.0!
Frantz Saumon makes La Boutanche wines the Loire. They are all naturally fermented, all stainless, all organic fruit from the grower Philippe Bougré (who is the same grower that Puzelat and Lemasson buy most of their Sauvignon and Gamay from). Clean, gluggable, classic examples of Touraine fruit, for afternoons with friends in the park drinking out of plastic cups.
A different producer, Gerben Tonkens, makes La Boutanche Cinsault in the Rhône. Gerben Tonkens is the assumed name of a well-known natural winemaker from the Ardèche region of France.
