Domaine de la Garrelière Touraine Les 2 Amis 2020
Les 2 Amis is a new cuvée for us although the Plouzeau family has been producing it for a couple of years previously.
It is a delightful wine comprising 50% Gamay and 50% Cabernet Franc. The wine is a collaboration between two vignerons from the Touraine appellation, namely François Plouzeau from Garrelière and Geoffrey de Noüel.
The Gamay comes from the excellent vines that have made the Gamay Sans Tra La La such a sought-after wine. The Cabernet Franc has been sourced from Geoffrey who also has vines in the Touraine. The vines thrive on Aeolian sand and clay derived from flint sitting on a limestone base.
The wine underwent natural fermentation without the addition of any sulphites. It was matured in steel tanks for 6 months prior to bottling when a tiny amount of sulphites were added.
It is a lively, energetic wine that is ready for drinking now. - Living Wines, Importer
