Les Amandiers - 2017 - Jonathan Maunoury

Domaine Jonathan Maunoury

One of our favourite cuvées from Jonathan, a surprising wine with a nose of spice, blond tobacco and black fruit. The palate is powerful yet perfectly balanced, with a lovely acidity that promises this will age superbly. Try to be patient with this one!

€24.90
VAT included

100% Cabernet Franc from a single, 60-year-old biodynamic vineyard situated mid-slope on the western side of the Puy Notre Dame hill, with shallow, stony, clay-limestone soils. Harvesting is done by hand with small crates. Vinification: the grapes are 100% destemmed, followed by 3 weeks of maceration in vats, gentle extraction, manual pressing in a vertical press, transfer by gravity into 225-litre twice-used barrels, 14 months of maturation in underground cellars, then 7 months in vats. Neither fined nor filtered, and just a microdose of sulphur.

Yet one day while living in bustling Brussels and working a research position in the flexible screen industry (he couldn’t have been any farther from the great outdoors) he started feeling an unbearable desire for freedom. So he left to study viticulture...
