You know we love Gamay. We tasted Baptiste Nayrand’s 2018 wines for the first time on one of our trips to Beaujolais (he was exhibiting there as an outsider) and we were genuinely impressed. His vineyards are in Côteaux du Lyonnais which is between Beaujolais and the Northern Rhône. His domaine was founded in 2014, the vineyards for Vésanie were planted in the 1970s and are located in the village of Grigny. To try and give this wine some context it has plenty in common with the fantastic Northern Rhône Gamay La Souteronne or cross a great cru Beaujolais with Côte-Rôtie (in the JM Stephan style).

Farming on the granitic soils is fully organic (with biodynamic principles), vinification is without any additions.

The name 'Sauvage' (wild in french) originates from the parcel in Millery where the very old goblet vines grow almost wildly. Baptiste doesn’t plough the grass and the shoots are long without the support of trellis. 

'Sauvage' is pressed with a small vertical basket press and macerated for four weeks. Aged in new, untoasted oak barrels for 6-10 months. A fine, juicy Gamay supported by an intense and savoury backbone.
