Baptiste Nayrand L'Arlequin
Certified organic. 100% Gamay. Whole-cluster fermentation in fiberglass tank, élevage as well; around six months. Taken from a single parcel located on an intensely steep south-facing slope, called 'Saint Julien sur Bibost,’ at 700m altitude. It’s much closer to Côte-Rôtie in aspect and expression than anything in Beaujolais. Soils are metamorphic rock. Light filtration, with 1g of SO2 only at bottling.
