Elisa Guerin Beaujolais 'La Vigne de Mon Pere' 2019


no added sulfur

Country: France

Region: Beaujolais

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Gamay

Elisa Guerin is the daughter of a winegrower and has been making wine since 2019 vintage in Moulin à Vent & Beaujolais-Villages. She focuses on quality work in the vineyard, in order to obtain beautiful vines, healthy soils and balanced grapes. Her winemaking is as low-intervention as possible.  Elisa Guérin works organically without certification and shuns winery intervention except for a minimal sulfur addition pre-bottling.Ultimately, she seeks to respect the expression of gamay as much as possible, making wines that are fruity, complex, tannic or fine, depending on the terroirs.  

This is 100% Gamay from one of the old family plots at the very beginning of organic conversion, planted  over loam-y granite, peppered with limestone and quartz. The vines are between 30 and 50 years old. The grapes undergo a semi-carbonic maceration in whole bunches, with occasional pump-overs. Fermented and raised in concrete tanks without filtration for approximately 15 months.

Floral aromas and a balance of muscularity and elegance, with grippy tannins. The dark, inky fruit has a savory, almost Burgundian character, with dense concentration.
