About: "Gorgeous, powdery aromas of crushed rose petals and peppercorns leap from the glass, the texture of the wine is beautifully soft and silky, with integrated, lightly gripping tannic structure. There is a rusty, iron-like mineral quality beneath it all, that really shows itself in the long, stony finish. A truly elegant wine that demonstrates the complexity of its old-vine origin.

100% Gamay from the Guerin’s prized plot of 50 year-old, massal selection vines, planted over sandy, decomposed granite, also in the early stages of organic conversion. The grapes see a short semi-carbonic maceration in whole bunches, with both fermentation and élevage taking place in concrete tanks. The wine is bottled 8 months later. With some altitude over the Moulin-à-Vent and Village wines, this is the more delicate, finessed expression."
