All of Jean-Louis’ wines are made with whole clusters, zero extraction and natural fermentations. They are made from a combination of nearly perfect farming and zen-like observation. The elevage of this wine is 60% in stainless steel and 40% in futs de chene (barrel.)
Terroir: This old family parcel, located close to the house that Jean-Louis grew up in, is the outlier in the range of wines and would also be considered the same within the appellation of Brouilly. Brouilly is famous for its volcanic and metamorphic decomposed rock but Jean-Louis’ parcel is completely different as it rests on limestone and clay, which give it extra umph. This south facing vineyard has vines with at least 50 years of age but most are well beyond 100 years old.
