Vin Noé Tchin
Vin Noé is the micro-negociant project of young Californian winemaker Jonathan Purcell who works out of a 100 year old cellar in the village of Auxey-Duresses in Burgundy. His wines are produced in tiny quantities from grapes in the Mâcon, Beaujolais, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. The approach to winemaking is hands off with long and slow wild fermentations, no fining or filtration, and zero sulphur additions.
Tchin is a beguiling Gamay sourced from the Beaujolais-Lantignié region - an appellation aspiring to gaining the Cru status. Bright cherry and raspberry fruits with a marked stony quality on the finish.
