Wine with fresh acidity and a very nice tension. Every sip is an adventure. Still a bit young, plenty of life left. The wild vinyard with our Gamay is about 40 -50 years old. The soil is argilo, calcaire with Flint. The plants are not aligned and grow wildly in our fields. Grapes are partly destemmed before entering into the oaken barrels.
