A step up in concentration and “material”, this too is 100% Gamay Noir. Guillaume’s work on the Coteaux du Lyonnais wines has only continued to render outstanding results. The effects of long term, respectful and diligent organic vineyard care are undeniable. As good of a value as it comes.
A slight step up in density and complexity from the Traboules, this is also 100% Gamay Noir, its name taken from the large rounded river stones of the Rhône river. It was scored at 91 points in each of the past four vintages by Josh Raynolds, fwiw…..
“(raised for a year in large, neutral oak casks) Lurid ruby-red. Vibrant cherry and raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of smoky minerals, floral pastilles and spicecake. Concentrated red fruit flavors are energetic and sharply focused, and hints of cola and licorice add depth to the back half. Silky, sweet and broad on the long, incisive finish, which features soft tannins and lingering floral and mineral notes.” 91 Josh Raynolds FOR THE 2015, NOT THE 2017 OFFERED HERE.
