Clos St Jean Cote Roannaise Passion Volcanique
Lovely Gamay from an unexplored region lying right at the source of the Loire, around 60km away from Beaujolais. The volcanic soils of the region lend this wine a powerful minerality and hint of smokiness. It is characteristically light on the palate, although carries concentrated dark berry flavours to complement its floral aromas. Complex, concentrated, and structured; the low tannins and bright acidity, alongside a slight bitterness, make this a great food wine.
Joël Lapalue started his vineyard in 1994, going organic from the beginning and being the sole local producer to do so for close to a decade. The farm is holistic, with lambs and sheep providing meat and cheese for consumers, as well as manure to fertilise the vines.
