Vin Noé Nas Sans Julie
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.
A play on Julienas from where the grapes from which this cuvée is made are grown, Nas Sans Julie is 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.
