Sextant Métisse 2020

Sextant Métisse a fruity and juicy natural red wine. Cherry and strawberry notes fill the nose alongside hints of undergrowth and mushrooms. Light and fresh on the palate, reaffirming the presence of red fruits. It may be slightly carbonic.

Fun Fact: Julien Altaber called this wine Métisse (half and half) because the first vintage was a mixture of red and white grapes

100% Gamay from a single vineyard. Made by the Sextant winery under the Vin de France denomination in Burgundy, France.

Destemming of two-thirds of the clusters. Maceration for 10 days, a third of the grapes are pressed directly. Alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts in fibre vats where the resulting wine ages for 6 months before bottling.
