Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Often grown in Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in the Loire Valley. This one is similar to those of Crus Beaujolais but with raspberry notes and the signature fresh-peppery nose of the Cabernet Franc.
Jean-Marc Villemaine operates his family winery with his wife and two teenage sons who hand pick all the grapes. Their estate consists of 18 hectares of flint and clay soils. Practicing the "Terra Vitis" approach to agriculture, a holistic style in which great care and concern is given to maintaining a natural balance between flora and fauna, Jean Marc produces wines of intensity and purity.
