Thierry Michaud maakt in Touraine zalige drinkbare en betaalbare wijnen en zijn gamay is zeker geen uitzondering.
Een glas vol rood fruit wat onvermoeibaar lijkt. Licht gekoeld het lekkerst !
Thierry’s commentaar op het jaar 2018:
“2018, an exceptional harvest. What vintage! From winemaker’s memory, it has never been so pleasant to harvest. There was both quantity and quality, and for all grape varieties. The maturity of the grapes required all our attention, and we started this harvest from August 30th for Crémant and September 3rd for Sauvignon. We have been very vigilant about the evolution of the high sugar content and have not sought to harvest overripe grapes. Our desire is above all to respect the typical wines of the Loire Valley: fruit, freshness, and alcohol content between 12 and 13%.
2018 is also the year that allowed us to obtain our certification “Reasonable Agriculture High Environmental Value” (“certification HVE” in French). The work we have been doing for years is bearing fruit and we are committed to continuing to work in this direction, both in the vineyard and in the winery.”
