Domaine De Cray Pinot Noir, 2016
This delicious Pinot Noir from Domaine de Cray is packed full of aromas of red fruits; cranberry, raspberry and redcurrants to name but a few. It's an elegant red wine with great balance and a great example of Pinot Noir from the Loire Valley.
Domaine de Cray
Domaine de Cray produces a wide range of wines from dry to sweet and white to red. Apart from Chenin Blanc grapes it also grows Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The focus is however on the white wines and the calcareous clay soil gives the wines acid and character that is so typical of the Loire.
When Antoine completed his studies at the University of Bordeaux, he went to New Zealand to learn more about modern wine making practices. Antoine then returned to the Loire to take over the vineyard and is currently a very dynamic winemaker, renowned for prestigious wines that have won awards both nationally and internationally.

Wines from the Loire Valley vary wildly in terms of their style and flavour – in part due to the vast number of appellations and large areas planted under vine.

Brimming with innovative producers aiming to produce wines as naturally as possible, there is much joy to be found in Loire Valley wines – we recommend you dive in head first to sample the delights on offer today!
