From a site located in the western part of Savennières and north of the Loire River, Brittany native Loïc Mahé grows bio/organic grapes on shale soils and makes unfiltered wines fermented with natural yeasts and few interventions like sulfites or chaptalisation.
Yes, it’s admittedly difficult (although not impossible) to find in North America. Make the effort though – it tastes great.
On the eyes, a translucent ruby with pristine aromas of crunchy raspberry and green leaf with a mineral kick.
