Were you ever served an anonymous pitcher of delicious, spritely, light red wine while in a bistro near Lyon? Likely, it was exaclty like this Burgnundy beauty. Simple. Clean. Lovely with country fair.
From the mouth of the importer (Weygandt-Metlzer):
"Entirely hand-harvested from a 1.2ha area. In the Mâconnais, the village of Serrières is the only area to exclusively grow red wine Gamay, and this holding is a source of pride for the Greuzard family as it makes a deliciously fruity and peppery red wine.
Vincent and Isabelle Greuzard started to work with us almost 30 years ago and after one or two years let me make my own assemblage taking the oldest vines, aging about one-quarter in barrique, about one-half new. We have happily continued this tradition since, with now the entirety of this Vieilles Vignes cuvee being barrel fermented, but always being sure to get the old vines (Vieilles Vignes) character. The village of La Roche Vineuse (meaning vinous rock) appropriately named for the bevy of limestone found in the vineyards, is located in the heart of the Mâconnais, and captures its true “terroir”. This lovely wine balances richness with minerality; the mid-palate and length are classic Burgundy. There are less expensive Mâcons; there may be greater Mâcons, but we feel there is no finer Mâcon for the money."
