Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

VdP, Iconique Gamay, Le Gd-Clos, J-M Novelle - 2018

  • Provenance: Geneva
  • Appellation: Vin de pays romand
  • Domain: Grand-Clos, J-M. Novelle
  • Grape variety(ies): Gamay (vieille sélection massale prise à Morgon dans les années 20 par le grand père de J-M. Novelle)
  • On-call time: 7 years
  • Style of wine: Vin fruité et gouleyant
  • Alcohol degree: 14%
From an old massal selection taken in Morgon in the 1920s by Jean-Michel's grandfather, this formidable Gamay offers a first nose, racy and surprising, of pepper, which even reminds us of certain Syrahs; it precedes a spicy, vinous, full-bodied palate, full of juice, which calls for charcuterie or a fine meat.

Viticulture

Le Grand Clos is a family estate of 7 ha located in the commune of Satigny. The vineyard on the hillside is grassed over and maintained with the utmost rigour. A lot of work is done in the vineyard, which produces little but gives healthy and concentrated fruit. The grapes are harvested when they are fully ripe in terms of alcohol, phenolics and aroma.

Oenology

Aged in stainless steel vats for up to 24 months. In some red vintages, malolactic fermentation is only partially carried out, or not at all, in order to preserve a maximum of freshness and purity of fruit.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Pâté en croûte - Quail with grapes - Veal kidneys with mustard seed.

If there is one thing that cannot be taken away from Jean-Michel Novelle, it is his sense of wine. And his capacity to question himself. Two qualities which are the prerogative of the great winegrowers whose wines we love, whether they come from Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy or elsewhere...Indeed, after having made a name for itself in the 80s and 90s for its powerful wines, produced by long maceration (for the reds) and very long ageing in wood - often new wood -, it has evolved over the last ten years towards a completely different style, without wood, without "malo" for the whites (and sometimes even for the reds!), turned towards gastronomy, bright, fresh, vibrant... But before arriving at this form of maturity, the road has been long. Before taking over the family estate, Jean-Michel was a brilliant student who could have gone on to a completely different career, but the call of wine was stronger. So in 1980 he arrived at the Grand Clos estate and rethought the grape varieties. The old Gamay and Pinot Noir vines were kept, while a large part of the Chasselas was torn out to allow the planting of grape varieties that were often new and therefore never explored in Geneva. History and success would prove him right, but not content with revitalising the Grand Clos and strengthened by its success, he took advantage of the same period to advise a number of estates throughout...
