Varietal: Gamay

Region: Beaujolais

Country: France

Volume: 750ml

In the heart of the Morgon cru, Thibault has unveiled a captivating new wine crafted exclusively from Gamay grapes. Sourced from his meticulously tended vineyards, Les Charmes and Corcelette, this wine is a testament to his dedication to organic farming. The Les Charmes vineyard boasts 40-year-old vines, while the Corcelette vineyard features 50-year-old vines, both rooted in granite and schist soils.

Thibault's hands-on approach is evident in every step of the winemaking process. The grapes are carefully hand-harvested and then subjected to traditional whole-bunch carbonic maceration. Following spontaneous fermentation, the wine is aged on fine lees in concrete tanks for 8 months. Thibault adheres to a minimal intervention philosophy, with no fining or filtration and only a maximum of 2ppm of SO2 added at bottling.

The resulting wine is a juicy and youthful yet elevated expression of Morgon, showcasing the unique terroir and Thibault's meticulous winemaking techniques.

About Winemaker

Thibault Ducroux

In the rolling hills of the Morgon cru, Thibault has crafted a captivating new wine that beautifully showcases the potential of Gamay grapes. The grapes for this unique wine hail from two of Thibault's organically farmed vineyards: Les Charmes and Corcelette. With 40-year-old vines in Les Charmes and 50-year-old vines in Corcelette, both growing in granite and schist soils, Thibault's commitment to quality and sustainability is evident from the start.

With a hands-on approach, Thibault oversees every aspect of the winemaking process. The grapes are lovingly hand-harvested and then subjected to traditional whole-bunch carbonic maceration. After spontaneous fermentation, the wine matures on fine lees in concrete tanks for 8 months. True to his minimalist philosophy, Thibault refrains from fining or filtration, adding only a maximum of 2ppm of SO2 at bottling.

The result is a wine that offers a juicy and youthful yet elevated take on Morgon, reflecting both the unique terroir of the region and Thibault's meticulous winemaking practices.
