The Details

2022, proving to be an intensely difficult vintage, rendered the Ardèche vineyards where Aurélien usually farms his Gamay extremely low yields. So much so, he had to blend some entry Syrah into the Gamay. A rare, distinct treat from a supremely difficult year. Heavy-but-light -- shares something with Guillaume Gilles' N. Rhône Gamay 'Combeaux Massardieres' from years ago...

4-5 weeks of semi-carbonic maceration prior to pressing into tank where the wine rests for 9 months. Unfined, unfiltered, minimal added SO2 at bottling. 13.5%ABV

About Rhône Valley

Wines from the Rhône Valley, located in southeastern France, are celebrated for their diversity and exceptional quality. This historic wine region is divided into the Northern Rhône and the Southern Rhône, each offering distinct styles of wine. In the Northern Rhône, Syrah is the dominant grape variety, producing elegant and full-bodied red wines such as Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, known for their rich flavors of dark fruits and peppery spice. In the Southern Rhône, blends are the hallmark, with Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre often leading the way, resulting in robust reds like Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, featuring bold fruit profiles, herbal nuances, and a touch of Mediterranean warmth. The Rhône Valley's white wines, predominantly made from Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne grapes, exhibit freshness and complexity, with notable examples like Condrieu and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. Overall, Rhône Valley wines showcase the region's terroir-driven character, making them a favorite among wine enthusiasts worldwide.
