Julien Braud - Les Coteaux de Sèvre 2020
Pinot Noir and direct press Merlot
Muscadet, Loire, France
A lovely, crispy Pinot Noir from the young and organic producer Julien Braud, in which he blended some direct press Merlot. This is one of the first wines from these very young vines, creating a very, very light colored but well structured, alive, delicious and natural Muscadet red. You can taste the minerality and salinity of Muscadet that is surrounded by wild strawberries, a hint of cassis and a refreshing acidity. Nice to pair with fish dishes and ultimately suited to have chilled in your glass in the sun.
