Regular Price $24.99

Out of stock

Super light bodied red wine made from from 100% gamay.  This is like swishing silk sheets in your mouth.  Almost like a white wine posing as a red.  This wine is ready to improve your boring chicken dinner.  It’s also such a gentle tannin profile, that it can be drank alone.  The super fresh 2021 vintage is giving off strawberry and sage vibes.

The Mâcon is known for it’s rolling limestone hills that experience more sun, less rain,
and less risk of frost than the rest of Burgundy. ‘Verger des Feuilants’ is a parcel of
50-year-old Gamay vines situated in the village of Charnay-lès-Mâcon. Its name comes
from the face that the parcel is divided in two by a small peach, apple, and plum orchard
(a ‘verger’ in French). These parcels have south-westerly aspects that expose them to
sunlight throughout the day and allows them to maintain their warmth late into the
evening. This ensures the vines do not suffer rapid temperature fluctuations and
stimulates photosynthesis, ensuring that the Gamay grape (usually associated with the
Beaujolais region, further south) can develop physiological ripeness quickly, under
stress, in Burgundy’s precarious continental climate.
