Maupertuis La Guillaume Cotes du Auvergne 2012

Maupertuis La Guillaume Cotes du Auvergne 2012

Sku: 065815

450 meters up in the Côte d’Auvergne, Jean Maupertuis strives to fashion wines made from Gamay grapes that are hand harvested, fermented using indigenous yeasts, and bottled unfiltered with minimal addition of sulphur. Once upon a time the Côte d’Auvergne was home to more Gamay vineyards than anyplace in France, including Beaujolais! These wines supplied daily rations of wine low in alcohol for countless industrial workers. At that time, low alcohol meant around 8 degrees; this wine checks in a bit higher, but still at only 11.5 degrees. The wine has a soft yet haunting bouquet that calls to mind small red fruits and flowers. It is juicy, thirst quenching, easy to drink. A fun lunchtime wine that you can drink a full bottle of and not feel overwhelmed when you get back to work! Ben 8/17/11
