Le Coeur de la Reine 2019 Gamay, Touraine, Loire Valley, France

"LE COEUR DE LA REINE" is a collaboration with Rodolphe & Ludivine Marteau and Vincent Leclair - both fourth generation families in Touraine. The Marteaus took over their family’s estate, which is a 29 hectare property is located on South bank of the river Cher,  in 2010. Vincent assumed leadership of his family's estate in 2014; it's a 45 hectare estate in Pouillé, in the Cher Valley. 
  • Winemaking: Rodolphe & Ludivine Marteau and Vincent Leclair 
  • Farming: Organic
  • Variety: 100% Gamay
  • Terroir:  These vines average 30 years in age and are meticulously tended by the  family.  Short-cane pruning, selective ploughing, spring de-budding,  deleafing, grass cover throughout the vineyard and green harvest  practices all lend to limited yields and best quality fruit at harvest. Clay and flint soils
  • WINEMAKING | Harvested by hand with vinification in stainless steel tanks including 8 days carbonic.  Elevage in tank until release.
  • TASTING NOTES | Bright berry aromas dominate in this light bodied red.  On the palate,  ripe red fruit flavors (strawberry and raspberry especially) are  accented by a delicate spicy note.  Smooth and mellow, delicious with  just a bit of a chill.
