A wine with a little extra soul.
The nose is very ripe and pronounced. Red fruit is on the front, starting with cherries, raspberries and finishing with herbal and spicy notes. Musky earth and dried violet increase its complexity.
The taste is dry, very clean and complex. The acidity and tannin are in a perfect balance, giving the wine a very round mouthfeel. Very juicy and precise at first becomes rounder and sweeter in its long aftertaste. A joyful wine for every occasion!
Georges Descombes is the unofficial fifth member of the iconic "Gang of Four" that in the '70s started the "Natural wine revolution".
He took over the family winery in 1988 and shifted the farming in an organic direction.
The Gamay grapes used for this Cru are hand-harvested in whole clusters and fermented with natural yeasts with the traditional cold semi-carbonic maceration. There is a minimal sulfur addition at bottling. This wine express the granitic soil and terroir at its best showing great finesse and power.
