Gamay from old vines on sand with a granitic sub soil a stone throw away from Sébastian's cellar in Saint-Étienne-des-Ouillières south of Beaujolais. 

Two thirds of the grapes were de-stemmed and macerated together with the remaining one third whole bunches for four months, something which Sebastian explains that is relatively uncommon but for him it is about pushing the limits of what is possible in Beaujolais with the Gamay grape varietal. 

The result, a deep, complex and structured example of Gamay with fine tannins. Drinking well now but definitely has the ability to age in your cellar for another couple of years. 

Sébastien’s winemaking adventures started in the early 2000s with a chance encounter that got him working with legendary Jura winemaker Jean-Marc Brignot. That experience eventually led to him creating his own winery in the village of Saint Etienne des Oullieres, south of Beaujolais in 2015.



The magic to Sébastien’s wines can be easily felt when he pushes the limits of what is possible with his signature long macerations often up to 3 or 4 months with a mix of destemmed and whole bunch grapes depending on the cuvée. The result of his patience? Deep, complex and luscious wines which are a reflection of Sébastien’s pensive side.



When asked what is his winemaking philosophy, Sébastien insists on the importance of making wines without intervention but rather working in a very gentle and patient manner which is apparent from his gentle yet long press using a manual basket press and his signature of unusually long periods of maceration.
