Vin de France "La Tranche le retour", Philippe Jambon

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


One of the most brilliant of all Beaujolais wines, Philippe Jambon's La Tranche is back! Because of weather problems, it was not possible to bottle La Tranche from 2008 to 2010. But the timing couldn't be better for its return, as the 2011 vintage is marvelous, my favorite Beaujolais vintage in recent years. This is gorgeous as expected. Luscious bright red fruits, with a lovely texture (the hallmark of the vintage), and satisfying depth. The fruit is grown at Jambon's Coteau de Balmont plot, a high elevation, steep hillside vineyard. A fantastic terroir in Beaujolais. Jambon plows manually and has to pull the plow up with a winch, instead of a tractor so as not to compact the soils. The vineyard is farmed organically, and the wine is vinified without additives and no addition of sulfites.
