Dom. des Grabottes 2019 "Les Grabottines"

It is unusual for a young vigneron to deliberately wait some years before releasing his wines to the market, but such is Jonathan’s confidence that that is exactly what he chooses to do. This is no easy pleaser, but a serious and subtle wine that swells with aeration and unveils an insinuating core of pure, liquorous fruit that is firmly bolstered by a mineral bedrock. This is Gamay for thinking people.
