Given the devastating
losses in the 2016 vintage, Isabelle and Jean-Yves
decided to make their first Gamay, having been
offered the opportunity to purchase some organic
fruit from a grower in the Beaujolais. They were so
happy with the result, they decided to continue
making this cuvee. Partially destemmed, partially
whole-cluster, macerated for just under two weeks in
large oak vats, then gently pressed and moved to
smaller, used barrel for fermentation followed by
twelve months of élevage. The name “Celsius” is a
reference to the rapid drop in temperatures in the
spring of 2016, which caused frost damage and
created the circumstances which led to the creation
of this cuvée.
