Domaine Jacky Marteau Touraine Gamay Lulu 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The vines are planted on some of the finest wine-growing lands in Touraine, on the south bank of the Cher River. Rodolphe’s primary focus is getting the best quality of grapes through various techniques such as spring de-budding, de-leafing grasping through the vineyard, and green harvest for lowering yields. Semi-carbonic maceration in a vat, with the de-stemmed portion of the crop on the bottom and whole bunches on top. The wine rests on fine lees until bottling. The amazing thing about Gamay is that because of the high natural acidity paired with low tannin, the wine pairs shockingly well with a very broad array of foods. Going wrong with Gamay and food is hard. Gamay is consistently chosen as a top wine to pair with Thanksgiving dinner.
