60% Cabernet Franc - 20% Gamay- 20% Grolleau
Les Pentes is blend of three classic Loire Valley red grapes: Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Grolleau. Cabernet Franc provides the backbone and structure for the wine, Gamay adds fruitiness, and Grolleau energy and freshness. The Grolleau is especially typical of the area around Azay-le-Rideau. This easy drinking, food friendly red wine is inspired by the fillettes of wine sold by the liter in cafés and bistrots throughout the Loire Valley and in Paris, and embodies the same spirit of affordable, enjoyable, and affable companionship to any meal.
