Variety

Gamay

The Cuvée du Chaos comes from the oldest vines in Grand Pré which are 60-100+ years old. Yann considers this his cuvée d'exception, and uses these vines to experiment with biodynamic farming and other ways to advance his vineyard management. The wine itself is one of the most beautiful expressions of Gamay in the universe, a wine that searches for purity over strength, and elegance over richness. It's a rare example of a tete de cuvée that is lighter in body, though richer in complexity. Like everything at the domaine, this wine is naturally vinified without any added yeast or SO2.
