An ancestral Burgundian blend – Passetoutgrain is a blend of 2/3 Gamay and 1/3 Pinot Noir. Winegrowers were traditionally allowed to create a blend of the two grapes when blocks were planted with a mix of the two cultivars. When harvesting they would “pick them all” or “passetoutgrain”.
Spicy raspberry jam entices you on the nose. The palate is awash with ripe red fruit characters and floral notes of violets, lilac and spicy roses. The texture is supple with a pleasantly juicy finish. A wine to be enjoyed with friends everyday.
