Désiré - 2020 - Hervé Villemade - Magnum

Hervé Villemade

85% Pinot Noir and 15% Gamay from 30-year-old vines grown organically and planted on flinty sandy soils. The harvest is done by hand, the grapes sorted in the vineyard, and the yields kept under control. Vinification: the grapes are macerated in Georgian amphorae (qvevri) of 800 and 1000 litres and in old barrels, then aging in amphorae until the bottling in September 2021. Unfined, unfiltered, just a micro-dose of sulphur. Only produced in magnums!
