Julien Braud Forty Ounce Red 2016
Made with Gamay grapes from Northern France, the Forty Ounce Red is sustainably-grown and produced without any synthetic products or other chemical treatment, according to the brand. Straight forward and delicious. Bright red fruits and a good deal of acidity. Serve chilled for maximum refreshment.
Julien works entirely organically and is recently fully certified. He also incorporates biodynamic approaches. He uses horses in his vineyards to minimize soil compaction, hand harvests, uses only natural yeasts for fermentation after a gentle press, and ages the wines on their lees in glass-lined, underground cement vats. A truly quality-minded approach that has resulted in wines of complexity, texture and balance.
