We have shipped from the Passot family of Domaine de la Grosse Pierre for over 20 years and are delighted that with the arrival of Pauline (who took over from her parents in 2018) the property goes from strength to strength. Pauline`s fresh approach has brought with it positive changes, with more focus on vineyard selections. This `Claudius` cuvée is from an east-facing, 2 hectare plot of the family`s oldest (80-year-old) Gamay vines, growing in decomposed granite. It is a vibrant, intense, supple wine, being unoaked, to allow its natural, crunchy fruitiness and floral nuances to be at the fore. Bright purple-ruby colour, aromas are alluring, with notes of fresh red cherries. The palate is full, open and succulent, with generous middle, admirable flavour intensity and silky tannins.
