Georges took over this domaine in 1988 from his father.  He grew up amongst the vines and was inspired by the purity and elegance of Gamay through the great wines of Marcel Lapierre.  Most consider him the unofficial 5th member of Kermit Lynch's 'Gang of 4'.  Georges works organically in the vineyards and practices minimal intervention wine making.  The Vieilles Vignes bottlings are wines that I would consider cellaring for up to 5 years.  The fruit is dark and intense but not weighty.  The 18s were delicious and the 19s are outstanding. 

Grape: Gamay (50+ year old vines)

Soil: Granite

Farming Practices: Organic 

Grapes are chilled when they arrive to the cellar and see long semi-carbonic macerations (three weeks to a month) in various vats. The wine is then aged in 228l Burgundian barriques for at least 12 months. They often age in bottle many years before being sold. 15 to 20mg per liter of sulfur added at bottling.
