Jolie-Laide Gamay Noir


Out of stock

Vintage: 2019
Region: El Dorado, California, United States
Viticulture: Biodynamic
Grape varieties: 100% Gamay

Grown at high elevation in the beautiful red granitic soils of the Sierra Foothills. Picked in two separate passes, one early and one a bit later makes for a wine a bit riper and fleshed out than in years passed. The clusters are left whole and started by carbonic maceration, which lends its distinctive high tone appeal, then eventually crushed by foot and finished whole cluster for skin contact and extraction. Light, fresh, and utterly charming. Wild strawberry and summer herbs with cranberry tartness.

Song: Pretty(Ugly Before) by Elliot Smith

Jolie-Laide is a one-man operation based in a Sebastopol winery. Winemaker Scott Schultz makes only 500 cases of wine a year under his own label. The name Jolie-Laide translates loosely to “Pretty-Ugly”, a French term of endearment to describe something that is unconventionally beautiful. Scott makes some of the most unique and highly sought-after wines in California that are true to their name.
