Vin Noé Dirty Love
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.
Dirty Love is Gamay from a plot of vines grown in blue granite and schist in Beaujolais. A deep and intense wine with great concentration of black cherry, fresh herbs, earth and fine granite minerality.
