Duc de Nauves Red...$26.99 / 750ml
    The Amoreau family acquired this nine-hectare property in 2006 and immediately began employing biodynamic practices (Duc des Nauves has been certified biodynamic since the 2015 vintage). The vineyards are situated on the same Asterie-limestone mother rock as those of Le Puy, but at a slightly lower altitude—80 meters above sea level compared to Le Puy’s 110 meters. The topsoil is slightly sandier and less clayey here, and it is a bit deeper than at Le Puy—between 1.0 and 1.3 meters. In the cellar, Duc des Nauves is both fermented (spontaneously, of course) and aged in cement, and bottled without filtration after one year—a simpler elevage which results in a wine built more on the fruit than the “Emilien” above. Hailing from a warm and solar growing season, the 2019 Duc des Nauves offers a dark, ripe, granular nose of black cherries and plums, and despite the richness of the fruit it pulls off a lifted and balletic palate, with that haunting seamlessness of texture that all Le Puy wines demonstrate.
