Producer: Jeremy Quastana
Grape Varieties: Gamay
Overall Rating: ★★★★★
Pairing: 100% gamay is unusual, but this was a delicious wine. Jeremy Ouastana is a young, French winemaker who is all about sustainability. L’Insurgé is a light bodied red, with excellent fruit flavors and some tartness. As the French would say, this wine has plenty of glou-glou. It is best served slightly chilled and was a perfect choice for warm fall evening aperitif (i.e. pre-dinner drinks).
Scent: Strawberries and cherries, and some earthiness
Flavors: More berries and cherry flavor, as well as some pepper
