While technically the Côtes Roannaise is classified as part of the Loire River Valley, it’s actually much closer to Beaujolais than the rest of the winemaking areas along France’s longest river. Here you find picturesque hillsides with granitic soils ideal for growing gamay. Gamay Saint-Romain is the local variant of gamay noir, known for its small, tight bunches which produce spicy, dense, extremely fruity, and fragrant juice. Romain Paire and his father Georges farm biodynamically, tending grapes and cereal grains as well as Limousin cattle on their centuries-old family farm. Vineyard work is all done by hand and cellar work follows the same ethos of low intervention. “La Colline en Flamme” is an energetic, classic bistro red with vibrant fruit and a lingering finish, super versatile on the table, enjoy this with everything from tuna tartare to burgers or simply on its own!
