100% Gamay. Direct-press rosé from the most productive Gamay vines in Brun's estate vineyards in Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. Concrete-aged on its lees with malolactic fermentation and some stirring. Solid medium body and rosy pink, with a vibrant, peachy, chalky-crisp palate.

"Light orange-pink. Aromas of ripe red berries, blood orange and succulent flowers carry a subtle mineral topnote. Chewy and focused in the mouth, offering ripe strawberry, candied rose and musky rhubarb flavors that put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity. The berry and mineral notes linger very nicely on the finish, which is sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. "
