Le Claux Delorme Valencay 2015
Previously winemakers in Menetou Salon, Albane and Bertrand Minchin rapidly imparted their dynamism to this new estate they acquired in 2004. Coincidently, at the same time as the classification of the Valencay AOC appellation. This cuvee, a blend of Gamay, Côt, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc, gives the impression of being a cross between Beaujolais and Bourgeuil. Supple tannins, supple texture and lasting finale.
