Wine Box of 3 red wine
An atypical Gamay from old vines with very low yields, also due to the flocks that target the vineyard: the name of the wine is dedicated to them. The aging in old wood vats ranges from 36 to 48 months according to the classic style of the winery. The color of the wine is a transparent ruby and the bouquet is captivating, delicate and layered, soft and complex at the same time: it smells of lemon thyme, sour fruit, rhubarb and eucalyptus and it is then in the mouth that the wine takes flight. The taste is very articulated and already in the center of the tongue it has a salivating acidity that is simply irresistible. The body is light and rhythmical, a masterpiece that is not afraid of prolonged contact with oxygen, on the contrary it reaps contagious benefits. A great bottle! Unfiltered and without added sulfites.
From a vine that before phylloxera (around 1850) covered more than 9,000 hectares in Yonne, while today it has practically disappeared. Icaunais means "native of Yonne", a French department in the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region bordering on Aube and Côte-d'Or. The name derives from the Gallic goddess Ica-Onna, which later became Icauna and finally Yonne. Grapes grown on silex clay soil where treatments are kept to a minimum. Very low yield of 25-30 hl/ha and maturation in small, not new, barrels. Unfiltered wine with no added sulphites. A unique wine, in history and taste

From soils rich in limestone and chalk. Yield per hectare of just 18 hectoliters. Vinified and aged for 30 months in used barriques. Almost impenetrable in the glass, the nose offers notes of plum, cherry, rock, chalk and iron. The palate is deep, with hints of currants and figs, all supported by a vibrant minerality.
