Wine of the Week: Henry Marionnet Gamay 2009

June 2nd, 2011

The Marionnet family has been living in Soings, in eastern Touraine, since the mid-19th century. The estate covers 60 hectares producing up to 400,000 bottles. The cellar is fully equipped with stainless steel vats. No barrels are to be found in the cellar. Because they use unconventional methods, their wines are completely original and bear unique characteristics.

The unique aspects of this wine imbue it with vastly different qualities such as: first, its lightness, which allows it to be drunk in healthy mouthfuls; then, its ruby red color with violet undertones; and finally, the explosion of aromas and fruit, strawberry, raspberry, black currant, kirsch, coffee and English sweets.
This wine can be paired with any meal and will delight you from beginning to end while quenching your thirst. It renders any dish lighter. It must absolutely be drunk cool (46° to 48°F in summer and 52° to 53°F in winter) and young, at between 1 and 18 months.
