About the wine: This cuvee is made from +100 years old vines. The philosophy of the Jouffreau family is simple: be good farmers. give things time, observe nature, be respectful. This approach has seen low yielding vines ageing back to 1885 still producing intense, great fruit. Old vintages from Gamot are bucket list wines. Older vintages such as 1978, 1988, 1990 are outstanding. The ability of Clos de Gamot wines to age and transform over time is exceptional. We are proud to import this 'sleeping beauty' and share with you.
Taste like: An outstanding wine from a great vintage. With notes of prune, black fruits and leather. This reveal itself after a few minutes in the glass.

When to drink: Now and for the next 30 years after vintage.
