Julien is determined to take us on a voyage far beyond his native Sologne with this 100% Gamay cuvée from old vines planted in 1968 and grown organically. Manual harvest at full maturity and controlled yields. Vinification: 100% destemmed, one week of maceration with a few punch-downs and pump overs, and matured for 15 months in old barrels.
