A delicious Gamay vinified by Alexandre Bain in the purest Beaujolais tradition. More info

Alexandre Bain's merchant business came of a desire to vinify grape varieties that he doesn't grow on his domain, such as Gamay. He undertook a tour of France in search of the finest wine makers who would give him some of their grapes. His only criteria were that the vines be grown organically and the grapes be harvested by hand. For this cuvée, a wine maker in the Ardèche provided him with Gamay. Sent directly to the domain in Pouilly-Fumé, they are vinified with the same passion as the Sauvignon Blancs. This vinification is entirely natural, with no intervention, fining, filtering or sulphur added. Semi-carbonic fermentation is carried out in order to preserve the freshness of the variety, as is often seen in Beaujolais. This wine has a deep, ruby colour. Its intense nose of red fruit makes way for an indulgent character on the palate. A real gem to be enjoyed in its youth.

Vin de France N°07 Alexandre Bain (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C.

Information about domain Alexandre Bain

The son of a winemaker, Alexandre Bain set up his own domain in 2007 at Tracy-sur-Loire (Pouilly-Fumé), after studying oenology at the Beaune Lycée Viticole and after various placements where he worked in particular with winemakers who use natural, organic and bio-dynamic methods. Today his vineyard, covering an area of eleven hectares, has biodynamic certification and is worked using horses. The wines are made without any inputs (indigenous yeasts), they are neither chaptalised nor filtered and contain virtually no sulphites. Alexandre Bain places great emphasis on harvesting his grapes once they are completely ripe. This tends to lessen the Sauvignon's varietal aspect (boxwood aroma) while emphasizing the terroir instead, but on the other hand it brings out the mineral quality and a fine acidity. Bain's originality means that his wines do not full under an appellation. Regardless of this wine lovers remain loyal to him. With rare candour, Alexandre Bain's wines express the typical characteristics of their terroir; they are deep and generous, with pure aromas and incredible drinkability.
