Briney wild berries, black pepper, cocoa and herbs. An atypical, delicious expression of Gamay.
Jeremy was introduced to the importers by the late and great Olivier Lemasson. Jeremy worked with Olivier for a few years and managed to grab a couple hectares of land not far from Olivier's main plot in the Loir et Cher, not far from Cheverny. Before that, Jeremy learned the trade at Marcel Lapierre's winery and did a six-month internship at Clos Ouvert in Chile. In four vintages, he has shown that he can make clean, highly drinkable wines with very little sulphur dioxide. Jeremy is still a young vigneron and, in our opinion, he gets better every year.
50-year-old Gamay vines on Schist from Beaujolais. It's Jeremy's only negoce label, he made it in the past due to very low yields, and even though 2020 was generous, he likes to keep the relationship alive in case another bad vintage arises (2021 will see almost no fruit in the Loir et cher, and they spent the whole season fighting mildew).
