  • TASTING NOTE: Bright cherry and strawberry qualities backed with complexity of pepper and spice, crushed flowers and a slight mineral tang. Shows good structure, not too loose or too fruit-led. Very slurpable.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: This is the third vintage for Elisa Guerin. Gamay is sourced from 60-year-old vines planted on blue schist on a north facing slope on the border of Moulin-a-Vent and Chénas. Whole bunches undergo carbonic fermentation in concrete vessels before being pressed off to tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a tiny bit of sulfur.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The Guerins, based in Chénas, farm 4 hectares of vines across the Moulin-à-Vent and Chiroubles appellations that have been in the family since the early 1900's. Elisa, a trained agronomist, is the first generation to break out to pursue her vision of chemical-free viticulture over these sites and natural methods in the cellar. Very much at the beginning of what promises to be a fascinating journey, in 2019 Elisa began the long process of converting the land, with the long-term goal being to have the estate completely turned over to organics. With a strong focus on environmental impact, the plan extends to diversifying the landscape and encouraging biodiversity with the planting of hedgerows and fruit trees, and to experiment with new methods of fertilisation, using plant-based extracts and treatments. There will also be some white grapes popping up alongside all that Gamay, with plantings of Aligoté and Melon de Bourgogne. She began in 2019 with a small production of Beaujolais-Villages, from 50 year-old vines in conversion, as well as another wine from a small 2-hectare parcel in Moulin-à-Vent, both of which are the first to be bottled under her own name. As the reins are, piece by piece, handed over from her father, Philippe, Elisa is also changing the way the wines are vinified; fermenting only with native yeasts, raising the wines in concrete rather than barrels and scrupulously minimising any additions, seeking to create expressions of Gamay that reflect this mixed terroir of granite, limestone and schist.
