Terres DoréesFRV 100 Rosé (2018)
Gamay from Beaujolais, France
100% Gamay. The name "FRV100" is a play on the word “effervescent”--which becomes more apparent when you sound out the letters and number in French--and is indicative of the playfulness of this off-dry, sparkling rosé. From organically farmed estate Gamay on limestone clay soils in the southern...

100% Gamay. The beginning of the Desvignes range is La Voûte Saint Vincent, which comes from various estate parcels in the Morgon climat of Douby, north of and just below the Côte du Py. Douby has deep, sandier, granitic soils and yields a more supple style of Morgon compared to Py's famously...

DesvignesMorgon Corcelette
Gamay from Beaujolais, France
100% Gamay. Louis-Benoît and Claude Emanuelle had been interested in exploring terroir in Morgon outside of their usual estate parcels, and the short 2016 and 2017 vintages in their own vineyards gave them added motivation to  start sourcing a bit of fruit for the first time, in this case from the...

Gamay from Beaujolais, France
100% Gamay. Desvignes farms 3 hectares on the Côte du Py, which is famous for its roche pourrie or "rotten rock" of manganese-rich, decomposed schist, which makes for notably structured, long-lived wines.

DesvignesMorgon Montpelain
Gamay from Beaujolais, France
100% Gamay. The Montepelain parcel used to be folded into the "La Voûte Saint-Vincent" but its own character is so distinct that it has been bottled singly since the 2017 vintage. This half-hectare of 80-year-old vines sits on silty soils of sand and clay, on a level site on the eastern edge of the...
