|Article number:||Impossibly violetty, savory, soysaucey Cru Bojo. Perfection.|
Grape varieties: Gamay
Region: Beaujolais, France
Soils: Decomposing pink granitic topsoil, referred to locally as roche pourrie or rotted rock, over clay base 2 meters below.
Vine age: 50 years
Farming: Practicing organic. Hand-harvested estate fruit.
Vinification: Indigenous yeast fermentations in concrete vats at low temperatures, to preserve fresh fruit flavors and a delicate tannic structure. After fermentations are complete, fruit is slowly pressed, over a 24 hour period, using an ancient vertical press
Aging: 11 months of ageing in used Burgundy barrels lead to lifted, lacy, ethereal wines that are reminiscent of Julien’s Chambolle beginnings.
