Grosjean Gamay Vallée d’Aoste DOC 2020

Estate: The Grosjean family has been farming in the high elevation of the Alps in northwestern Italy since the 1700’s. In 1969 Dauphin Grosjean presented his wine at the local “wine expo” and was awarded many accolades, thereby inspiring the entire family to devote themselves to the production of wine, and the vineyards were expanded. His 5 sons followed in his footsteps, acquiring land for a total of 16 hectares of vineyards and building a new winery. Today, the 3rd generation continues championing native grapes at the solar powered, biodynamic and certified organic estate.

Winemaking: Vines planted between 1972-1998, on a steep slope 700 – 850 meters in elevation with sandy, slightly calcareous soil. Wild yeast spontaneous fermentation, vinified and aged in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Cranberry, cherry, red currant, crushed rock minerality, wildflowers, peppery spice backed by tangy acidity and fine grain tannins. Concentrated wild berries, trace of elderflower saturate the smoky mineral finish. Genteel, silky, gleaming.
