A brightly flavored red Gamay from north of its established home in Beaujolais. Montchovet is longtime biodynamic producer from Bungundy, setting up his vineyard under this methodology in 1984. The grapes are harvested at full ripeness and transferred to oak barrels directly after pressing. Natural fermentation and aged in wood with 10% new oak barrels.
From the mouth of the importer (Jenny & Francois):
"Ruby in the glass with a deep purple rim. Red cherry and strawberry preserves dominate the nose. The palate is rich with red cherry and bright strawberry fruit. Moderate tannins, red berry spice and vibrant acidity dominate the elegant finish.
Didier Montchovet created his biodynamic vineyard in ’84. He leased a modest half a hectare not too far from Pommard, where he five years later added an additional two and a half more hectares that enabled him to begin making wine under his own name. In ’90 Didier sold his first bottling, today Didier works 9.2-hectares of biodynamic vines near the village of Bouze-les-Beaune, which is approximately 4-kilometers northwest of Beaune. The cellar was conceived to make maximum use of gravity, as a result, no pumps are used during the bottling process. Didier also has a system that recuperates rainwater, helping him conserve this natural resource during the spring and summer. Didier is committed to making outstanding Biodynamic wines and the results of his efforts are a vibrant testimony to the harmony that can exist between winemaker and nature."
