Winemaker Notes: 

"In local patois, a “balmes” is a slope. This steeply graded vineyard was planted nearly 100 years ago, its ancient vines producing a handful of bunches each vintage. But what a treasure in Beaujolais! Excellent terroir (a mix of limestone, clay and the classic “pierres dorees,” the mineral-rich, golden chalk that characterizes much of Beaujolais) plus very old vines places this anything-but-simple Beaujolais Rouge in cru territory. Simply a treasure in great Gamay!  Aromas of red and purple flowers, cherries and red plums, light baking spice, pepper. Medium-bodied; smooth tannins."  

From the Importer: 

"You can’t ignore the seashell fossils that crunch underfoot as you walk through the Durdilly family vineyards, as if the ocean were just over the next gentle hill. It’s this unique terroir, with its mineral complexity, that sets the family’s Gamay wines apart from other more rustic bottles from the region. While our history with the Durdilly family goes back at least two decades, it’s exciting to see a new generation come into its own. Guillaume Durdilly is now working along side his father, Pierre, and together they are expanding their holdings in Beaujolais, seeking out older-vine, cru vineyards that have been abandoned and bringing them back to the greatness of which they are capable."
