100% Gamay from Brouilly in Beaujolais. Marc Delienne is an up and coming star who happens to be in his 60s... Former banker from Paris who switched to winemaking at 56 and apprenticed under some famous names before buying some old vines in Beaujolais and making hands-off, real wines without chemicals.
This is from deep granite in Brouilly and speaks loudly with red fruits, tart cherry and vibrant spice. "Bright and full of life" in the words of Mike Bennie. Delicious. 13.5%abv
