This is a high-toned, aromatic, crunchy red wine from Isère in eastern France, a region better known for skiing than for wine. In fact the delightful Nicolas Gonin may be the only Isère grower represented here in the New York market. Gonin's vines grow in sandstone, sand, and clay. Aged in enamel tanks to preserve this rare local grape's fresh acid and vibrant fruit (and because Gonin professes himself to be "not a fan" of wood), this is a pure and zesty wine with flavors of cranberry and blackberry, a nice florality to the nose, and a mouth-coating wash of tannins on the finish.
