A 100% Gamay Petillant Naturel from the Loire Valley. Deliciously dry and earthy, zero SO2 is added to this easy drinking, fresh sparkling rose.a
Terroir : Very good draining soil with a lot flint and “cornule”. Clay-limestone subsoil. The vineyard is exposed of the south hillside of the “Indre”. Work in the vineyard : No use of synthetic chemical products, no herbicide. Vineyard ploughed. Disbudding and hand harvested in small trays.
The 2017 Morgon wafts from the glass with aromas of cassis, plums and spicy soil, framed by some high-toned top notes. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with fine but youthfully chewy structuring tannins that assert themselves on the finish.
100% Gamay. L'Ancien comes from Jean Paul's oldest vines--hence the name of the wine--in his home village of Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. They range in age from 40 to 60 years old and are planted on slopes sporting the area's signature sandy clay-limestone soils, featuring the particular local "dorée" or "golden" limestone that is laden with iron. These older vines have always been farmed organically and harvested by hand and yield small, thick-skinned Gamay berries. As for all Terres Dorées reds, the vinification is traditional Burgundian. The grapes are rigorously sorted and destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats. The wine is aged in concrete until May-June after the vintage.
A very special, lightly-sweet sparkling rose from a tiny appelation between the Jura and Savoy. Made from 80% 100-year-old Poulsard and 20% 40-year-old Gamay, grown and vinified organically, and made by the ex-director (41 years!) of 3–Michelin-starred Georges Blanc in Vonnas. Gorgeous red fruits and rose petals dance elegantly with a little residual sugar and ample acidity to make for a perfect foil for your sweet tooth.
