Clos St. Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2001

It needs lots of decanting and then you get thousands of layers of complexity
Quite oaky style though and you need to be a fan of that to enjoy this

Reserve Brut Rosé

Great as always. It's definitely my go to sparkling rosé when I want some (and I rarely do). Wild strawberries, red currant, cream, cherry, toast. Well balanced, good acidity, wonderful mousse with ripe red currant flavours.

Maxime Francois Laurent

Il Fait Soif Côtes du Rhône Grenache Syrah 2017

🏅 Rating 89/100 (3,9⭐)

Juicy fruity natural wine seasoned with pepper. Savoury and floral (violets).
Tannins are ripe and sandy by texture, attacking the front of your mouth. Gluglu easy drinking wine, despite 14% Alc. Drink when thirsty while wine is young.

Blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault. Younger wines (15-30 years old) from Clay-limestone soils in Montbrison Sur Lez and Valréas of Côtes-du-Rhône.

Winemaking of this negoce project of Maxime François Laurent is identical to the one of his mother's (Michèle Aubèry-Laurent) famous biodynamic Domaine Gramenon. Maxime buys organically grown grapes from his friend. As in Gramenon, fruit is partially de-stemmed keeping the rest in whole bunches. Maceration lasts for 15 days in cement tanks o extract flavours and intense colours. Fermentation is done with native yeasts. Wine is then agied in oak barriques for 6 months and preserves its fruity freshness.

These natural wines rarely see sulfites, only up to 2g/hl when needed after malolactic fermentation. No fining, no filtration.
