Sourced from 100% 45-year-old Gamay Noir vines grown in granitic sand, hence the name, this unique sparkling rosé walks a very fine line between funk and fruit. Ripe strawberries and plump market raspberries are unearthed, once one gets past damp spring soil, that walk through the barn in sodden boots (and yes, I had a barn with animals, I know it well). Given that, its unusual countenance is a welcome break. It's more classically styled and delicate on the palate and a very nice companion to charcuterie. It's well worth mentioning that this was tasted at Bar Avignon, a wine bar in Portland, Oregon that I highly recommend.
