2020 Le Juice Fleurie Gamay
Le Juice is 100% Gamay and comes from a small single site called ‘La Cabane’ on the hill of the famed 'La Madonne' in the high reaches of Fleurie. The 36 year old bush vines are planted on coarse sand with speckles of bright pink granite dotted throughout. The wine is carbonic macerated for 9 days as whole bunches in concrete and aged for 6 months in tank. We bottled it young with a small sulphur addition. It is juicy and bright with a fleshy mid palette and opens beautifully over the course of a few days.
