Grape: Gamay

Land: From old goblet trained vines at the top of Poncie, one of the celebrated vineyards along the ridge high above the village of Fleurie. Granite soil dominated.

Wine making: Inspired by the fermentation notes from Jules Chauvet (one of the key figures in the French natural wine movement) in 1972, the hand picked clusters were placed in concrete vats for three weeks with no crushing, pumping, or plunging.
Pressed after 21 days, the wine finished fermentation by indigenous yeasts before nine months in a wooden vat. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
We found Fleurie-Poncie to be a purist expression and flowers and rocks.
