    100% Gamay d'Auvergne from Francois oldest parcel planted on pure basalt and limestone of Corent, aged 40 years. This is Francois' upper parcel of his Gamay vineyard and produces a wine of far more structure than it's little brother Jus de Vilain. Whole bunch fermentation in fiberglass for almost four weeks before being transferred to old barrels for 1 year elevage in barrel and six months in bottle before release. Meaty and rich this wine evolves beautifully over hours open.
