Touraine Appellation AOC 1939DFW SpeakWe love wines that intrigue.Jeremy is the kind of story we love, and this L’Insurge “the rebel” is the kind of wine we love to drink. Natural, whole, real and alive! 50 year old vines and 10% alcohol, no filter, no added sulfur. We like this rebel. Cherries, strawberry and hints of dried herb and smoked strawberry on the nose, it flows like water. We drink it with anything or just because we can.
