2015 VDF ‘Le Cuvee de l'Hotel’


2015 VDF ‘Le Cuvee de l'Hotel’


We have had this in our cellar for a while now. The longer it sits, the better it seems to get. A blend of a two-day maceration of Gamay and a direct press of Hybrid 54-55. No added sulphur. Matt’s red initially went volatile, he then blended it with some Gamay from Benoît Landron and left it to come back around.
