About: "The aromas here are wine open, with a lifted floral perfume. With Moulin-à-Vent generally providing more meaty intensity, here an impressive balance of muscularity and elegance is on display, with a granular feel to the grippy tannins. Dark, inky fruits have a savoury, almost Burgundian character, with a dense concentration that chisels down to bitter liquorice.
100% Gamay from one of the old family plots at the very beginning of organic conversion, planted over loam-y granite, peppered with limestone and quartz. The vines are between 30 and 50 years old. The grapes undergo a semi-carbonic maceration in whole bunches, with occasional pump-overs. Fermented and raised in concrete tanks without filtration, with bottling taking place some 15 months later."
