  • Age of Vines: 60 to 80 years old non-clone vines

    Yields: 25 hl/ha 3,000 bottles annually

    Pruning Method: Gobelet

    Soil: Schist

    Varietals: Gamay

    Vinification Method: Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a very long maceration at a low temperature—without de-stemming. The wine is fermented in wooden tanks and aged on fine lees in secondhand oak casks for eight months. The wine is bottled without filtration. The wine has a total SO2 of only 25 mg/L.

    Tasting Note: Nearly purple in the glass with a garnet rim. The nose is an enticing array of strawberry, black cherry, plum, fig paste, smoky herbs and pounded stones. Buoyant black fruit dominates the palate and is followed by pretty red berry tones, and minerality. The granite soil evokes something very familiar and Beaujolais-like, while cloaked under the influence of the Northern Rhone, suggesting the more dark and bacon-y tendencies of Syrah from this area.
