Domaine Les Roches Bleues "La Croquante" Brouilly '21
Third-generation producer Jonathan Buisson, who farms ten hectares of Gamay vines in the Brouilly cru, in southern Beaujolais, using organic and regenerative practices. Though technically part of Burgundy and located just south of the famed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay mecca of the world, Beaujolais is quite different and makes its own unique wines.
“La Croquante” is the entry point into Jonathan’s range. This cuvée is made in a soft, easy-drinking (aka glouglou), completely charming style. It is made from 40-to-60-year-old Gamay vines planted on the pink granite soils of Brouilly. Vinification includes eight days of whole-cluster, semi-carbonic maceration, followed by a very gentle and slow pressing using the château’s old, wooden vertical press. The must is transferred into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where fermentation continues with native yeasts. After racking, the wine spends eight months in 50-year-old foudres before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
