When in the Loire, drink Loire. Domaine Bobinet hits all cylinders with organic farming and a natural approach to winemaking. Sébastien Bobinet took over his parents Domaine 2002 and is now joined by Emeline Calvez. They have a tiny 1.8 hectares in Saumur. They make wine from usual players of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc but they also are playing with other varieties like Gamay, Grolleau and Pinot d’Aunis. The Les îles is what they call their “easy drinking” range of wines. The red is a Vin de France Rouge using their new plot of Grolleau Noir. It is made using carbonic maceration and has not been aged oak. It is super light with abundant red fruit notes. A truly crushable red for the summer heat.
