The wine is traditionally fermented, whole clusters, in concrete and stainless steel, indigenous yeasts, he does not heat his fermentation, very light filtration at bottling.
Côte du Py
65 year old vines from Côtes du Py; rich soil with blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. Whole cluster fermentation in concrete and stainless. Full-bodied and powerful.
Beaujolais-Villages Les Vignes de Lantignié
This Beaujolais villages come from granite soils in the tiny village called Lantignié , one of the best place in this area to produce serious and fruit-forward wines. Whole cluster fermentation in concrete and stainless. Rich, plum fruit backed up by long smooth tannins and balanced oak.
Morgon Grands Cras
83+ year old vines, from the southern part of the Côtes du Py spine in Morgon. Whole clusters, indigenous yeast fermentation in concrete and then aged in neutral wood for 8 months. This is serious and sturdy Beaujolais, more akin to drinking Burgundy, but less dark in its fruits than the Côtes du Py, Pomegranate and cranberry, bright and energetic Gamay with textural long finish.
