Lavernette ‘Granit’ Blanc de Noirs Gamay * Leynes, Beaujolais, France NV

$32.50

Lavernette ‘Granit’ is the most special of treats from the border of Burgundy and Beaujolais. A Blanc de Noirs of every wine lovers dreams. Cru Gamay crunchiness with enough cremant creaminess to make it as quaffable as it is crushable. I love when red fruit tones truly shine through in a white sparkler like this; tart rainier cherries and soft black raspberries do a little dance on your tongue. It’s also a great example of the value of ‘Brut Nature’ (no added sweetness) as the insistent acidity really ties the wine together.

Lavernette ‘Granit’ Brut Nature
Gamay Blanc de Noirs 
 Leynes, Beaujolais, France NV

Chateau Lavernette is a situated in a pretty magical spot. The land was originally purchased by the family from monks in the late 1500’s and sits right on the current border of Beaujolais and Burgundy. It boasts both the legendary granite soils of Beaujolais for their Gamay vines and the Limestone soils required for great Pouilly Fuisse. Truly, the best of both worlds.  The estate was the first in the area to transform to organic viticulture, the newest generation, Xavier and Kerrie, have taken things one step further by converting to biodynamics in 2010. This rare unicorn of a sparkling wine is very limited and has yet to really gain the attention it deserves, so get on board while you still can.
