"With air, this light, dry gamay builds into a smooth expanse of white cherry and marzipan flavor. The acidity keeps it finely shaped, a quiet, elegant wine for a vegetable quiche."

Product Description:

"100 percent free-run Gamay from the heart of the Touraine in the Loire, this elegant, pale pink Rose, with delicate strawberry notes and a crisp finish, offers refreshment at a can't-say-no-price." -Importer

WINERY:
"The Bardon family is located in the small commune of Meusnes in the region of Loir-et-Cher on the Cher River’s edge. Their family history dates well back into the 19th century and has always included a vocation for winemaking. The family vineyard, perfectly situated on the slopes overlooking the village, boasts the distinctive soils that once gave rise to a bustling weapons-supply industry because of their large quantities of flint. This unique type of soil known as “gunflint “ creates the perfect conditions for making wines that are highly representative of the Loire Valley, the 'garden of France.'"

"Denis Bardon runs now his family Estate. With almost 40 hectares of vineyards, Domaine Saint Roch produces a variety of wines offering great value from their vines planted in mainly clay and flint soils with some limestone. The estate practices sustainable viticulture. Attentive work in the vineyard, selective pruning, and perfectly ripened grapes are the motto for Denis Bardon, who makes wines with balance, good acidity and typical Loire-Valley wine characteristics."

"The estate got its name from the patron saint of the church in the Bardon’s hometown of Meusnes, also the patron saint of stonemakers. Due to his family’s long history in stone and flint production, Denis Bardon thought it the perfect name to represent the wines under his Touraine label." -Importer
