Variety

Gamay

Les Journets is a prolongation of the Blémonts parcel in Chénas that Raphael has been farming for over a decade. In 2017, he decided to vinify this block separately, experimenting with a full carbonic fermentation to make a juicy, "grapier" Beaujolais - the style of wine that he most enjoys drinking with his winemaker friends. The results were so successful that Raphael now vinifies all of his red wines using cold carbonic - the homegrown, Beaujolais method of natural winemaking.
