Regular price$88 Sale price

Red wine
Gamay (d’Auvergne & Beaujolais)
Whole-bunches maceration in large stainless steel tanks
9 months ageing in old 300-L and 228-L barrels

A lifted, briary, slightly spicy dark berries nose with a touch of copper. Juicy with translucent flavours, with a creamy core, and an airy mouthfeel. There is a mineral drive and intensity that belie its open-knit structure, and the wine continues to put on flesh with air. Pretty, and far from simple. From predominantly red clay soils laden with iron oxide and limestone. Only 1.5 g/HL of SO2 added prior to bottling.
