Tasting Notes

Frantz Saumon's wines always go down with ease - his just-released rosé is no exception. Luscious, dry yet fruit-driven. Made from a blend Gamay and Grolleau that was fermented in steel tanks.

Staff Pick Notes

La Boutanche is a collection of "glou glou" natural wines put together by Selection Massale, an importer based in California. They asked several of their winemakers to put together low intervention, naturally fermented, low-no sulfur added, easy drinking wines that could sell in a liter sized bottle for around $20. Each winemaker is represented by a different wine loving, uniquely clad, animal: the grasshopper (Andi Knauss), the fish (Frantz Saumon), the pig (Olivier Minot), the French bulldog (Quentin Bourse), and the gorilla (Martin Texier). Frantz Saumon's La Boutanche Rosé is a lovely dose of Gamay with just a splash of Grolleau. Bright, tart, red fruits dominate the nose and palate. This is a dry rosé with lively acidity. It definitely fits the glou-glou soul, one bottle between friends is somehow just not enough!

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Loire

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
