2018 Jean-François Merieau, Gamay
$93.15 – $186.30
Located in the heart of France, the Loire Valley is famous for its natural beauty, magnificent châteaux and great wine. One of France’s most diverse wine regions that has grown in popularity with both sommeliers and wine writers alike, with each region featuring its own characteristic grapes, appellations and styles.
It’s hard to remember a time when being excited about Gamay was like confessing your love of velour leisure suits. Now Beaujolais is a required taster for all wine lovers. The Loire’s Jean-François makes an excellent example of Touraine Gamay, more nervy, high-pitched and mineral than Beaujolais but so satisfying to drink slightly chilled while arguing about the best way to grill a steak.
Pair with: Grilled steak
Available in 6 bottle increments for in-store or curbside pickup. Must be 21 to purchase.
