Grape – Gamay

Elisa Guerin
'La Vigne de Mon Pere' Moulin-à-Vent 2022

A wonderful example of what this cru can offer. Often making some of the more structured, ageworthy Beaujolais, here a balance of muscularity and elegance is on display. A wide-open aromatic profile leads to dark, inky fruits with an almost Burgundian character. Find out more.

Elisa Guerin
'Les Thorins' Moulin-à-Vent 2022

The darker, more brooding and structured side of Elisa's two Moulin-à-Vent cuvées; this is the only of her wines that sees any time in barrel. Robust and ageworthy, with an iron-rich mineral streak imparted by the gorrha soils that define this single 1.5-hectare plot. Find out more.

Elisa Guerin
'Les Thorins' Moulin-à-Vent 2022 MAGNUM

The darkest, most brooding and structured of Elisa's cuvées, this is the only one that sees any time in barrel. The grapes come from a single 1.5 hectare plot of 60 year-old vines in Moulin-à-Vent, planted over a very specific soil type known locally as 'gorrha' - a dusty, iron-rich mix of decomposed granite, quartz sands and clay.

Elisa Guerin
Beaujolais Villages 2023 MAGNUM

Elisa is back with the 2022 iteration of this Wayward favourite. From a hot vintage this is a deeper, riper Gamay that nonetheless retains its delicacy and verve. Dusty spices, black cherry fruits, stony minerals and elegant, fine-grained tannins. Just delicious. Find out more.

Elisa Guerin
Beaujolais-Villages 2023

As drinkable as ever, with a nose of cherries, crushed peppercorn spice and violet flowers, followed by some freshly crushed berry fruit and a lick of acidity, all underpinned with stony minerals. Juicy, vivid and wonderfully pure, we're so happy with this year's offering, as Elisa goes from strength to strength. Find out more.

Jerome Saurigny
Biclir 2022

A category defying red/white blend giving us the best of both worlds. Biclir is light and fragrant, showing touch more tannin and green fruit than previous cuvées, though still lithe and bloody with some pretty floral aromatics floating from the glass. Find out more.

Domaine des Grottes
Brut de Cuve 2022

A red so light we almost called it a rosé. Purity of fruit is the name of the game here, hinged on the idea of travelling from tank to bottle at the precise moment that 'grape juice' becomes 'wine'. It's no doubt clear that this highly youthful style leaves us with a Gamay that is prodigiously drinkable and you'll most certainly want on ice. Find out more.

Raphaël Beysang & Émélie Hurtubise
Bunny Wine 2021 LITRE

Raphaël & Émélie love big bottles. Rarely have we drunk anything of theirs from less than a litre-sized vessel. When you taste their wine it makes so much sense! This is deepest, wildest Gamay from a parcel in Theize they have lovingly converted to organic over the years. The wine is of the raw, expressive variety and brims with vitality. Find out more.

Mai & Kenji Hodgson
La Grande Pièce 2021

Mikaël Bouges
La Roseur 2023

Simple, thirst-quenching rosé made from the same base wine as his La Bulle pet-nat, a direct press of Gamay and Côt. It's a straightforward vinification, similarly completed in steel only and then bottled young. The style is less fruit-forward, more lean and savoury - little red fruits sit below a more prominent saline minerality. With a good chill this is one of those no-brainer pours for those moments when more is more. Find out more.

Michel Guignier
Mystère de Rosée 2021

Wow! This is one of those wines that makes a lasting impression for its pure deliciousness. What comes across most distinctively, from beneath all that bright, energetic red berry fruit, is a profoundly stony, mineral tone, as if the wine had been filtered through rock. At once easy to drink, but divertingly complex. Find out more.
