From the vineyard of Les Raisses in Lancié, a gentle slope of decomposed granite and schist, next to the celebrated vines of Fleurie. The 50-year-old Gamay Noir vines, trained in the traditional gobelet fashion, are farmed with respect, without any synthetic treatments, herbicides or pesticides. Harvested by hand, fermented as whole bunches, by indigenous yeast, in concrete. Aged for six months in a large oak vat. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulphur. We use CO2 for preservation so give it shake, or decant, before serving and store below 15ºC.
