Bernard Vallette Gamay "Cuvee Centenaire", 2014

21.00

From the deep south of Beaujolais in the village of Lachassagne, where the soils are clay and limestone as opposed to granite, Bernard Vallette is biodynamically farming 6.5ha of land passed down through his family from his grandparents. The grapes are all hand harvested and fermented with native yeasts using carbonic maceration and a comparatively lengthy aging in stainless steel. The resulting wines are charming and immensely drinkable in their youth, but also develop nicely with a few years of age. No additions in the cellar (including sugar) and just a touch of SO2 at bottling. 100% Biodynamic hand harvested Gamay. Listed only as Vin de France, as Bernard refuses to submit his wines for AOC status. Cuvée Centenaire refers to the 100 year old vines that make up this estate blend.
