`Probus` is Latin for `excellent` and acts as a reminder that Gamay started to be grown in Beaujolais under the Roman Empire. The 70 year old vines sit on silt and clay soils in a south east facing vineyard. The wine is ages for 10 months in tank with 20% aged in oak barrels. The resultant wine is a very deep ruby colour with notes of ripe black fruits on the nose. The palate is rich with black cherries, violets and mocha.
