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…..
“Assertive dark berry, cherry and floral pastille scents are complemented by suggestions of succulent herbs and smoky minerals. Sappy and nicely concentrated, offering mineral-laced bitter cherry and black raspberry preserve flavors that turn sweeter with aeration. Discreet tannins add framework to the finish, which lingers with solid, spicy tenacity. There’s something Morgon-like happening here.” 91-92 Josh Raynolds
