Write a Review

Sold Out!

Vintage: 2019

Varietals: Gamay

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfined, Low Added SO2

A concentrated juice, with spice, mint, and animal notes. On the palate, this is a fruit bomb, with beautiful depth. On the whole a structured wine boasting great drinkability. Warning: an addictive wine! But if you can be patient, it’s also got superb aging potential…

100% Gamay cuvée from old vines planted in 1968. Manual harvest at full maturity and controlled yields. Vinification: 100% destemmed, one week of maceration with a few punch-downs and pump overs, and matured for 15 months in old barrels. The Courtois DNA is definitely present! A natural wine without compromise. The label of this wine is a Maori design representing a dragonfly, drawn by Heidi Kuka, Julien’s partner. Unfined. Low SO2 added.
