Alcohol : 13,5%
Grape(s) : Gamay
Localisation : Côtes du Forez, Loire Valley, France
Tasting Notes : The color is translucent garnet. The nose is reminiscent of freshly baked plum pie sprinkled with Christmas spices. The mouth is slender, rectilinear, stretched by an invisible thread, with a material slightly denser than "Gourmets" - a tannic grain a little thicker - but nevertheless fine, fresh and easy to digest. 'a light smoke (the volcanic soil?). The finish is more earthy, with a fine, tasty, slightly chalky mash and humus notes. To end on pepper and blood / iron notes.
The AOC Côtes du Forez is a very small appellation located between Boën sur Lignon and Montbrison en Loire (42) which is starting to be talked about. Odile Verdier and Jacky Logel produce in our opinion the best of them with this cuvée resulting from an original entirely basaltic soil (volcanic soil poor in silica but rich in iron and magnesium).
