Grain sauvage, Humagne rouge, M.-Th. Chappaz (magnum) - 2021

A very rare wine, produced only in magnums. Beautiful aromas of violets, black cherries and mountain flowers (gentian). Voluminous, full-bodied and airy on the palate, yet at the same time full-bodied and very loose. Very elegant, especially on the finish. Limited to 1 magnum per customer.
