Tasting Notes: Ripe, juicy strawberries dominate, with a tangy acidity and a pleasant earthiness underlying the fruit, like foraged mushrooms plucked fresh from the soil. Drink chilled and try not to guzzle the whole bottle down.
Vinification: The 30-year old Gamay vines sit atop soils composed of Schist, Quartz, and Sandstone. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a kind of semi-carbonic maceration whereby half of the grapes are whole-cluster fermented without oxygen and the other half are de-stemmed. There is slight pigéage over the course of its fermentation. Unfined, unfiltered, and without additional SO2. 12.5% ABV.
