Gamay Vieilles Vignes "Font Grain" 2013

Vin des Fossiles Gamay Vielles Vignes Font Grain

This wine is sourced from 80-year-old Gamay vines grown in clay calcareous soils.

Vinification Half of the grapes are de-stemmed. After fermentation in stainless steel the wine spends 5 months in old barrels, then 10 months back in tank.

Tasting Notes This is a Gamay that shows lots of Pinot Noir characteristics. Smells of forest mingle with floral notes. Deep, complete, and structured, the length and minerality of this wine are striking.
