Welcome Domaine Trivel to the United States! This is their first vintage and their first time here in the US. It is a husband and wife team, Sidonie and Thomas, met at oenology school in 2015. Though her family has a history of winemaking in Alsace, they settled in Anjou, Loire Valley, not far from Romain Verger. 2020 was their first vintage.

This Gamay is made from 3 different types -- Gamay Beaujolais, Gamay de Bouze and Gamay Friou (the latter 2 are both teinturier grapes meaning they both red skinned and red fleshed). The wine goes through 15 days of carbonic maceration with all 3 Gamays fermented separately and spend 6 months in vats. This is a darker, stormier gamay with plenty of lift, balanced acid and dar rustic fruit. Light peppery spice, would be great with red meat.
