'Capitalisme Rouge' by Brendan Tracey, Gamay/Cot(Malbec), Loire Valley, France, 2013

We met Brendan Tracey last year and were charmed by his wonderful wine and winemaking ethos. Tracey spend most of his youth in California, his French parents had moved there in the 60's to immerse themselves in the San Francisco hippie movement. Brendan moved back to France at the age of 15 to better his French and learn a bit about the culture, which is where he first developed a passion for wine. Brendan moved back to San Francisco in 1977 and became involved in the punk scene, touring with 'The Dead Kennedys'. It was this part of his life that the penny clicked, the rebellion of punk informed Traceys winemaking process hugely. He didn't have to abide by the rules!

Thank the lord he doesn't, because the wine he makes is absolutely wicked! 

This light red blend of Gamay and Cot (which is Malbec) is refreshing with a familiar but unusual taste. Juicy and floral with spiciness from the Malbec. The clay and limestone soil is obvious in this wine as it has a mineral taste reminiscent of oyster shells. Serve room temperature or chilled on a hot summers day. Perfect seaside bottle!
