2019 Jerome Balmet 'Lemon Head' Gamay

Beaujolais, France

Lightly macerated Gamay from Beaujolais, but in the true sense of a natural wine. Hands-off in the cellar, short maceration and no additions. Little bits of blackcurrants, strawberries and raspberries with crunchy acidity. A little bit of funk. Seriously smashable. Would work perfectly with a light chill on warmer days. 12% abv.

About the maker

Jérôme Balmet learned his craft working with both Jean-Claude Lapalu and Mathieu Lapierre and farms organically with some biodynamic practices applied during the season.

Jerome produced his first vintage in 2012. He has just 3.5ha of vines split between Vaux-en-beaujolais and Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières just south of Brouilly. His site in Vaux consists of 50-year-old vines planted on blue granite on a steep hillside vineyard, while his Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières site is heavier soil down on the valley floor producing wines of greater density. The grapes are transported a short distance to his tiny cellar in Vaux, where they undergo a light maceration in his handful of old concrete tanks and foudres and are bottled with no additions whatsoever. The wines are adventurous for Beaujolais style, but nonetheless incredible enjoyable and will be sure to blow your socks off if you're into new age winemaking styles.
