Domaine de Montcy, Cheverny Rouge 2011

Cheverny Rouge 2011

The Sorting Table, Napa CA.

Gamay (60%), Pinot Noir (35%) and Cot (5%).  From clay and limestone soils, raised in steel.

Five years on.

Pale fox red and the slender frame of ’11.  A rosewater aspect almost like Furmint.  Shaded red berries from the forest floor, tincture and a lurking hint of eucalyptus.  Finishes mineral, positive and without pretense.  Now.
