Julie Balagny Docteur Bricou 2019
Gamay of real elegance and finesse. Luscious berry flavours with a touch of black pepper and a long, savoury finish. A remarkable wine from a vineyard over one hundred years old in Moulin-à-Vent. It is one of the highest in the appellation, at a similar altitude to Fleurie and likewise its soils of decomposed pink granite and quartz mirror its neighbour, rather than the heavier soils we expect to find in Moulin. As such this is a wine that in both style and spirit is closer to a great Fleurie. The purity here is simply stunning.
