Gamay Noir

Description

The estate of Maison Henry Fessy consists of over 70 hectares (175 acres) of exceptional vineyards in the heart of the region's celebrated Crus. Originally from Burgundy, the Gamay Noir variety is a naturally fruity grape that produces elegant and balanced wines. The reintroduction of the owl to the vineyards was carried out in order to sustainably combat and eliminate rodents and other animals that attack the vine.

Winemaking

Traditional temperature-controlled vinification.

Tasting note

Our Gamay Noir 2018 has a red-ruby color unveiling strawberry and raspberry perfumes. The palate is very fruity with blackurrant on the finish. This wine is light and very delightful.
