Sato's first Gamay Noir grown on their own vineyard (La Ferme de Sato).

An ethereal, delicate rendition - both complex and subtle. Red berries - raspberry and ripe strawberry, with underlying notes of white pepper and violet. 

Delicious now with a light chill, would also cellar well to reveal more complexity.
