Du Grappin Saint-Amour Beaujolais

Du Grappin Saint-Amour Beaujolais

€39.95
From old vines in the lieu-dit of “La Grande Charrière”, a vineyard at the base of the slope, made up of old alluvial decomposed granite, schist, and clay. These soils yield wines with both high toned aromatic intensity and a firm core. Inspired by Jules Chauvet’s fermentation notes from 1972, the hand-picked clusters were placed in a vat for three weeks with no crushing, pumping, or plunging, the grapes undergoing what Chauvet called a fermentation aromatique. Pressed after 21 days, the wine finished fermentation in tank before nine months in 500L barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright fruited & juicy, with a vibrant, aromatic, floral nose. Medium weight in the mouth with smooth, fresh tannins with a zippy, long finish. Some spritz was left in the wine to protect it, so a decant or a shake is encouraged! Glou-glou!
