2019 Le Juice - Gamay - Fleurie Beaujolais
Le Juice is 100% Gamay and comes from a small single site called ‘La Cabane’ on the hill of the famed 'La Madonne' in the high reaches of Fleurie. The 35 year old old bush vines are planted on coarse sand with speckles of bright pink granite dotted throughout. The wine is carbonic macerated for 10 days as whole bunches in concrete and aged for 6 months in tank. We bottled it young with a small sulphur addition. It is juicy and bright with a fleshy mid palette and opens beautifully over the course of a few days.
