This fiery and deeply elegant natural wine stunner from Bourgogne is possibly the only blend from legendary vigneron Pierre Fenals, as the name itself suggests. It’s 60% Gamay à petits grains, 25% Pinot Noir and 15% Muscat Chardonnay from a variety of parcels in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, all farmed in strict accordance with biodynamic principles. It sees spontaneous fermentation of the grapes with whole bunches and carbonic maceration before elevage on the lees. It goes in the bottle with no fining, filtration or added SO2. Warmly convivial, colorfully sincere and blessed with great rustic elegance: liquor-infused Morello cherries, marzipan, black pepper and tamarind with allspice.
