Though you might associate Gamay most closely with Beaujolais, the growing conditions and soils of the eastern Loire region also suit that light, relatively acidic grape. “Terres Blondes” is a release from Jean-Sébastien Marionnet (son of famed Touraine winemaker Henri Marionnet): the estate contracts with growers from the region to assemble a reasonably-priced blend. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are carbonically macerated and aged without oak. The profile is a touch earthier than the fruitiest Beaujolais, with minerality and tang to back up a floral nose. Sustainably grown.
