Yes, we’ll have some Nouveau, but here is your opportunity to taste the diverse wines of this region.
Chef Cynthia loves the Gamay grape and the different terroirs of this region which she visited in 2017. There are 10 different Crus, all with distinct personalities, in this area about the size of Napa, mainly devoted to the Gamay grape. 1% of the total output is Chardonnay which can be delicious and affordable.
