2017 Saint Pourcain Rouge, L’instant T
l’Instant T red is a blend of 30% Pinot noir and 70% Gamay, the 2 traditional red grape varieties that are grown in the appelation of Saint Pourcain.It has a very mineral nose of flint stone and a spicy taste, perfect comapanion for charcuterie and meat and game. For this red wine goes the same as for it’s white one, the region has had a reputation of simple and boring wines, but if you try this you will change your mind for sure. Hard work and passion have made this wine amazing and yet so affordable.
After travelling the southern hemisphere garnering experience in New Zealand and South Africa, Florent Barichard settled back in his homeland in 2013 on the sandy terrains of Châtel-de-Neuvre. With the support of his aunt and uncle, Valérie and Éric, he divided up his 9.5 hectares vineyard, dedicating a third of it to white grape varieties such as Trésailler and Chardonnay and the remainder to the red grapes, Gamay and Pinot Noir. Each vintage is uniquely balanced, acidity ,sugar and alcohol agree. The wines are aged in concrete vats and oak barrels .
