Clos Roussely has a history stretching back over 100 years. At the heart of Clos Roussely's 8 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc, you will find 40-year-old Gamay vines thriving off of dense clay, limestone, and slightly flinty soils. The terror here is largely responsible for the beautiful mineral expressions found in your glass. Vincent Roussely - the estate founders' grandson - carries on the winemaking tradition with old-school methodology. The Gamay is grown organically and then hand-harvested before going through a slow, natural fermentation in neutral oak in the underground cellars connected to the estate. A portion of the grapes are left whole and undergo carbonic maceration. The maceration process leaves a fresh, perfumed red fruit aroma on the nose. The mouth will be silky with plenty of supple tannins; muddled, savory raspberries, and firm acid, while deep black cherries and nutmeg carry you to lingering wet clay minerals at the end.

This easy-drinking Gamay is fine on its own or paired with a nice medium-rare steak.
