Gamay with grit.
The 'Maluseaux' 2020 is a Loire Gamay with some serious heft. All vines are farmed with a horse and plow, as Alexandre Giquel trained with Philippe Guichard from La Table Rouge, and he believes in the value of stripped-down viticulture. The Gamay vines were planted in 1967 from massale selection.
