Glou-glou with attitude.
This 100% Gamay from Les Deplaudes de Tartaras from the Northern Rhône is like the Miley Cyrus song – it can’t be tamed. Ultra badass glouglou-ery, with subtle aromas of spice thrown in the mix. You could probably decant this puppy for a little bit - 30 minutes tops - and we wouldn’t blame you.
- Pierre-Andre and Anne Deplaude consider themselves farmers first, and wine was actually an afterthought after operating a thriving grainery and dairy farm.
- In the early 2000s a drop in milk prices instigated a shift in their priorities, and they decided to take some of their most interesting land and convert it to vineyards.
- The Deplaudes made the conversion to Biodynamic Viticulture in 2009.
- The vines for this Gamay are over 40 years old and the wine spends 8 months in vats and oak barrels.
