Grape: Gamay taken from nearby friends
Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Winemaking
Purchased from neighbouring organic parcels on clay with a little sandy granite, 7 days whole bunch, no pump-overs, just occasionally using buckets of juice to wet the cap. Fermentation and ageing in concrete.
On the fruit, bright and balanced with a lifted freshness and nice crunch of tannin.
Sylvère Trichard took over his Grandmother’s four hectares of vines near the Beaujolais commune of Blacé in 2012. Along with his partner Mathilde Sothier, the pair work with biodynamic principles in mind, in accordance with the lunar calendar; but not pursuing strict certification. Vines are between 20 to 80 years old and planted on sandy clay soils over granite.
