Clos de la Bruyère (Julien Courtois), Ancestral 2010

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

Franc de pied Gamay, Côt and Gascon. Vines from ’68. Organic-BIO.  Label by Heidi Kuka, Julien’s wife.

Magenta.  Buckwheat and upholstery webbing and the palate is enormously black fruited, as if these ungrafted vines could produce the effect of a bursting cherry tomato in the mouth.  The poverty of these shallow subsoils give the wine its grippy mineral streak.  Now – 2020.
