A magnum in a bag from Emma and Andrew Nielsen of Le Grappin who source they grapes from the passionate and revolutionary growers in the under-rated Mâconnais, Beaujolais and Rhône regions of France and make them by hand in their ancient cuverie in the walls of Beaune.

From the village of Lancié which many consider the "next Cru"; old vines on broken-down granitic soil. Harvested by hand and placed in concrete vats as whole clusters. Pressed after 8 days on skins the wine finished its alcoholic fermentation by natural yeasts in stainless steel followed by 9 months ageing in a large wooden vat. The wine is unfined and unfiltered and only lightly sulphured just before packaging. Light, juicy and ever-so fresh!
