Gaspard - Gamay (2019)
A red natural wine made from 100% sustainably farmed Gamay grapes grown in the Touraine, Loire Valley, France. Semi-carbonic fermentation, aged for 8 months in stainless steel tank, low-sulfites (30ppm).
2019 was a very hot year with vine stress due to lack of rain, resulting in much lower yields, but more concentration and acidity then the previous vintage. Medium body, notes of fresh cherry, violets, baking spices, and earth.
About the Winemaker:
Gaspard is a Jenny & François house label. The grapes are sourced from a winemaker in the Loire Valley who makes the wines to our specifications. Jenny met a Parisian artist and asked her to create labels for this project. They put their heads together and came up with a name “Gaspard,” and a joyful label for lovely Loire-Valley creations.
