Gamay / Côt / Pinot Noir

Loire Valley, France

Mary Taylor's mission is to unlock the world of European “appellation” wines by working with individual growers in multiple villages— from Bordeaux to Nîmes to Valençay— who produce exceptional, regionally-distinctive wines at extremely accessible prices. Farming is inextricably linked to making distinctive wines and all of the growers that Mary Taylor works with farm responsibly; most are certified sustainable by HVE and others are certified organic and practicing biodynamic.

Originally founded in 1960, Domaine Jourdain has been run since 1990 by Sophie Siadou and her partner Francis Jourdain. Together, they sustainably farm approximately thirty hectares of vines, from which they craft their brilliant range of honest, regionally-expressive wines. A blend of 35% Gamay, 35% Cot, and 30% Pinot Noir,  it displays all the lightness and elegance of Pinot Noir, and also reveals its leaner, more structured “Malbec” side, expressed through a sturdy wash of tannins that balance its succulent flavors of raspberries, black currant, and spice.
