With buckets of bright red cherries, field strawberries, and slightly soft plumbs, this gamay is not to be messed with. Vibrant nose and subtle depth on the palate, this is a wine that takes you a while to get to know, but once you do it is harmonious. Wonderful balance and length, this wine is so diverse in terms of matching, it could be enjoyed with a chicken tagine with apricots and olives or a fresh piece of grilled salmon, delicious!
Cedric was head of winemaking at Gerard Bertrand, but always wanted to make Beaujolais. He bought a small estate in Regnié-Durette in 2014, complete with ancient arched cellars, vineyards with 80 year old vines surrounded by mature woodland. Their 5.5 hectares of vines planted around the buildings on a south-facing slope on granite soils. Organic farming and the organic lifestyle are at the heart of everything they do here. They are on their way to biodynamic certification too.
