Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Varietals: Gamay

Farming: Organic, Unfined/Unfiltered

Supremely drinkable, with a nose of carbo bubblegum and dusty crushed peppercorn spice, followed by some deep black cherry fruit and a lively lick of acidity, all underpinned with stony minerals. All carried out with weightless tannins.

Gamay from 60 year old vines planted on blue schist on a north facing slope on the border of Moulin-a-Vent and Chenas made naturally by Elisa in her second vintage. In concrete tanks the grapes undergo carbonic maceration in whole bunches and are pressed off to tank after 8 days, before being raised for 8 months to come to rest with no filtration. Racked with the turn of the moon, it is bottled in the spring.
