Bright tart red fruits, currants and raspberry tart. Quite persisitent. Not complex, but bright and pure. Hard to complain when you have this much purity and fruit for this price. Very bright and pure with some cherry pit/mineral notes coming through.
The wine comes from 50 year old vines from the 12th Century estate of Jean Marc’s aunt in Lantignie. This is a 5 hectare monopole.
Jean-Marc Burgaud founded his domaine in 1989. 19 hectares total -13 ha in Morgon, 5 ha in Beaujolais Villages, and 1 ha in Regnie. Jean-Marc has said that this is the maximum for him, it's possible to grow bigger, it's important to stay precise. Using traditional methods of viticulture, eschewing the using of chemical fertilizers or insecticides, respecting the land, plowing the soil, harvesting by hand, Jean-Marc does not care about being certified organic, but follows what needs to be done to grow the finest grapes. His vineyards have not see chemicals or non-organic inputs for over 10+ years and all work is done by hand and by horse. Vineyard density exceeds 10,000 plants per hectare.
