Drinking Window: 2023 - 2026
From 60-year-old vines at 400m, there's ample concentration and structure in this elegantly ripe Gamay, styled almost like a Pinot Noir. Sappy, juicy red cherry with a savoury cured meat edge and whispers of potpourri, framed by refreshing acidity and soft, powdery tannins.
