to the bottle 

From 

Quincy

Cuvée Mr Hood Robin

"I am

   The sweet Folly "

" Not exactly typical for a Loire Valley wine, one would grant me a Jurassic character.  Only when the year is lenient enough, 300 bottles of this cuvée are crafted. One has to well deserve me and grasp me before tasting me.
