Loire Valley, France
Romorantin is a varietal shrouded in mystery and legend. Designated to a small patch in Eastern Touraine, some believe that King Francis I inadvertently exiled it from Burgundy in the early 16th century by moving vines to the Loire. A sibling of Chardonnay, Romorantin posseses the same metamorphic ability to surprise tasters with its varying flavors depending on fermentation treatment. This bottle is crisp and minerally, with gushing acid expected from the grape. Additionally, notes of green tea and plantain creep through to the finish for a fun vegetal twist.
