Julien Courtois, VDF "Eléments" 6 Bottle Case 75cl
Equivalent Bottle Price £35.99
Fruit-forward with notes of blackcurrant and blackberry. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy red & black fruits, structured & spicy. Originally, gamay chaudenay was cloned & produced to act as dye in other gamay wines, but this is a stunning example of this variety flying solo.
Created in 1998 in Soings-en-Sologne, Clos de la Bruyère was founded by Julien Courtois, son of the famous (and infamous!) Claude Courtois, from Domaine Les Cailloux du Paradis. His passion for wine was born when he started learning how to run a vineyard and make wine with his father. Like his father, Julien’s aim has always been to make wines from low yielding vineyards in order to reach optimal concentration. With 4,5 hectares of vines, Julien works in close relation with natural cycles and waits for perfect maturity to harvest the grapes. The whole estate is harvested by hand and work in the cellar is left to the simplest expression.
