JEROME BALMET - 'RED BEARD' GAMAY 2019

 

TASTING NOTES

A fruit forward Gamay from the region of Beaujolais in France. Lo-fi winemaking while displaying a wine that has the typical flavour profile of this region.

From the flatter plains of St-Etienne, short maceration Gamay fermented in tank and pressed to 1 concrete vessel and a handful of small barrels. More lush and up front than the steeper slopes of its 'White Beard' cousin.

ABOUT

Jérôme Balmet learned his craft working with both Jean-Claude Lapalu and Mathieu Lapierre and produced his first vintage in 2012. He has just 3.5ha of vines split between Vaux-en-beaujolais and Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières just south of Brouilly. His site in Vaux consists of 50-year-old vines planted on blue granite on a steep hillside vineyard, while his Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières site is heavier soil down on the valley floor producing wines of greater density.
