A blend of all of Chauvet’s most beautiful gamay terroirs from the historic, very steep hillside of Boudes. Very deep nose and expansive. Unpacking it reveals smoke, a noble reduction, cassis, cherries, dried rose petals, pine needles and Sichuan peppercorns. Undefinably complex and intense, but also spherical and levitational, turning vaporous in the mouth as time goes by. A mind-bending Gamay and the class of the cellar with a magnificent cellaring upside. Basalt reigns supreme here with different types of marls, mostly blue. Only 1.5 g/HL of SO2 added prior to bottling. Wow!
