2020 Le Juice Gamay Fleurie
The 2020 Le Juice Gamay Fleurie is juicy and bright with a fleshy mid palette and opens beautifully over the course of a few days. Le Juice is 100% Gamay and comes from a small single site called ‘La Cabane’ on the hill of the famed 'La Madonne' in the high reaches of Fleurie, Beaujolais. The 35 year old old bush vines are planted on coarse sand with speckles of bright pink granite dotted throughout. The wine is carbonic macerated for 9 days as whole bunches in concrete and aged for 6 months in tank. We bottled it young with a small sulphur addition.
Das Juice was a project born of necessity, prolific wine importer/distributor Lo-Fi wines was noticing many of their customers were crying out for well-made, well-farmed wines at a sharper price point. After 3 vintages and much trial and error they have finally managed to put together their full range of Das Juice wines. Considered and pragmatic wine making, damn fine drinking.
