Another side of the Loire.
Yum, yum, summer fun! And I know what you're thinking, another Loire red?? Yes, but this time at least its Pinot Noir and not our good friend Cabernet Franc. I do like to mix it up a bit.
Sylvain Bailly, La Louee, Sancerre Rouge, 2006.
There is not a lot of fruit in this wine, it's pretty sparse, but what it does have is what i just love for summertime, lots of minerality and loads of acidity. it's so light and refreshing, and it evolves really beautifully in the glass, taking on more dried herbs and savory notes as it gets more exposure to air.
I will say, this isn't everyones cup of tea, but it sure is mine!
