Old vine Gamay planted within Saint-Joseph? Yes, it is a thing. Tastes like an intermediary between Cru Beaujolais and Rhone Syrah, with lift and guile but an underlying meatiness that is utterly delicious. This is outrageous drinking.

Grape/s: Gamay

Production Method: Organic farming, low yielding old vines. Whole berry, semi carbonic maceration. Wild yeast fermentation. 8 months maturation in older oak. Bottled without fining or filtration and minimal SO2
