The basalt soils of Leynes, where Beaujolais meets Macon, create a remarkable DNA in this iteration of gamay. Old vines planted in 1946 produce fruit of profound character: on one hand dark, brooding, ironous, and on the other detailed with red spice and sandalwood. We tasted this wine when it first landed and since then it's developed immensely, with much room to grow still.
