Region: Touraine - Loire Valley, FRA
Variety: Chenin Blanc, Grolleau, Cabernet Sauvignon
La Ferme du Plateau, a poly-culture farm, was established the following year, where goats are raised, vegetables are grown, an orchard of pears flourishes and wine is produced.
The vineyard is planted mostly to Gamay and Grolleau, as well as a small portion of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet. The vines range in age from 20 years to 80 plus years for the Grolleau. All work is done by hand, the wines are unfiltered and unfined and sulphur usage is avoided unless absolutely necessary.
Fouzy Tout is slang for crazy, all together. It’s a red-white blend. Chenin blanc was de-stemmed (about 15%) and placed into the bottom of the fiberglass tank, followed by whole bunches of Grolleau (75%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). Very slurpy, vin de soif. Chill and enjoy.
