Description

Based in the hamlet of Corcelette Daniel is a hardworking, humble, discreet and sometimes anxious vigneron. He prefers a solitary life and happily spends 12 hours a day working on his diverse and exceptional terroirs, taking care of old (60-100yo) bush vines traditionally planted at high density on Vialla rootstock; all of this by hand on steep slopes where no tractor could go. All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters and natural yeasts in concrete vat with two pump overs per day. The wines are then aged in old foudres in a tiny cellar, Daniel follows them through élevage with great care and bottles them without filtration. This makes for some long-lived and old-fashioned Gamay, some of the deepest and finest in the whole of Beaujolais.

This comes from 70yo vines in a schist and granite derived soil with blue diorite on the southern slope of Mont Brouilly. Aged in old oak foudres, with a fine plum colour, it has rich spicy fruit with a marked stony flavour on the finish.
