Domaine Cabissou Julienas "Bessay" 2020
Domaine Cabissou Julienas "Bessay" is just a very elegant wine. Aromatic with a fresh minerals and almost steely red fruit nose. Good depth and supple concentration on the palate, closing in a lovely fresh finish and long haunting flavours.
100% Gamay. The fruit for this wine comes from a 1.3 hectare island of old vines that grow on a dramatic steep slope at 450 metres atitude in the lieu-dit of Bessay in Julienas. Blue stone terroir planted with high density, organic cultivation and low yields.
Semi-carbonic fermentation using native yeasts and whole bunches. Ages for 9 months in old barrels. Bottling without fining or filtration.
