Jean Max L’Ext’hase 2021

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceFrom 70 year old gamay in southern Bojo's Charnay rooted its calcareous clay soils, this was carbonically macerated, with 7 months in oak, prior to a tightening moon phase rest in stainless, and bottling with low sulphur. A swing of reduction blows off to reveal pink grapefruit, tart red currant, wild flowers, peony on a crunchy, fresh palate. Tannins are long and sticky, and the finish is dusted with white pepper. A characterful charmer, much like the hare on the label. These are made in the cellar of Eric Texier in the Rhône, hence they are labelled as Vin de France. 3550 bottles made, plus 120 magnums. #gogamaygo.Tasted: 28 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
