Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Vincent Carême Fizzy Pink loire valley, france
$42

The Fizzy Pink is a more simple, fun wine than the Ancestrale – perfect for spring picnics.
Vincent normally only makes it for local consumption, from their cellar door or in the nearby city of Tours – it’s never been exported – but Living Wines convinced him to let them buy a little. As the name implies it is a deep pink wine made from Côt (the local name for Malbec), Gamay de Bouze (a teinturier grape variety that has red juice), Cabernet Franc and Grolleau Gris. It has just 6 grams of residual sugar. Tastes like flossy raspberries, large bead, smashable.
