Vin Noé Julie & Nas
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.
This is Jonathan's Julie & Nas made from whole bunch fermented Gamay grown in the Beaujolas cru of Julienas. A deep and mineral expression of Gamay with ripe cherry and red berry fruit, plenty of classic barnyard and undergrowth aromas and a long and silky mouthfeel.
