2020 Les Athlètes du Vin Touraine Pinot Noir

Responsibly Farmed
Hidden Gem
Geeky

This “Tuesday night” Pinot Noir from Athlètes du Vin is lively, fresh, and noted with a subtle earthy funk. The wine was made from sustainably-farmed fruit and native yeasts in the heart of the Loire Valley and is definitely best served slightly chilled. Minimal sulfur added and only 5,000 cases produced.

We say Tuesday night wine, though what we really mean is that this bottle is perfect for popping and sipping on the fly any day of the week.

Pairs with

Les Athlètes du Vin is a négociant project based in the heart of the Loire Valley. The group is made up of some of the region’s most dynamic and respected winemakers, including Thierry Germain, Pierre Breton, and Mathieu Vallée of Château Yvonne. All wines at Les Athlètes du Vin are vinifed by various members of the Vini Be Good network and are produced using their own grapes or grapes purchased from reliable friends and neighbors. 

Winemaking is done with minimal intervention, native yeasts, and minimal sulfur, with light or no filtration implemented (depending on the cuvée). Les Athlètes du Vin strive to make delicious and authentic, that are both responsibly produced and affordable. The labels are created by French artist, illustrator, and cartoonist Michel Tolmer, who has been the unofficial lead artist of the French natural wine movement since the 1990s.
