First impressions are pretty – a feeling somewhere between California and Beaujolais. Except it’s richer, and you get spicy/sweetness from oak casks. And a little earthiness. Beaujolais charm along with Californian seduction – a lot of fun for the price.
Chilled, it may be the perfect wine for summer grills such as salmon, chicken or pork. Chilling adds refreshment, and makes the lovely fruitiness taste even more delicious. De Loach was recently bought by Boisset of Burgundy, hence the earthy Frenchiness in the wine.
