Jolie-Laide Barsotti Vineyard Gamay 2019
Sometimes fascinating is more alluring than garden-variety beautiful, or so say the winemakers of Jolie-Laide (lit. "Ugly-Beautiful'). Taking the French compliment as their mantra, Jolie-Laide's wines are thoughtful & compelling and nothing like Napa's sleek Cabs. Their Grenache is crushed full-cluster and so retains a rare complexity for this loveable grape variety more commonly associated with Beaujolais.
