    Osamu has just 0.60 hectares of 30yo vines in a tranquil spot surrounded by pine forests (the previous owner ploughed, never used chemical and sold his grapes to the co-op!) from which he produces just 2400bts in a good year. Vinifications and elevage are carried out in his garage just 125 metres away from the high-tech headquarters of Mouton Rothschild! Destalking the grapes by hand, a cool fermentation with pigeage by hand, very gentle extraction (half traditional, half carbonic maceration from the whole grapes not broken up by pigeage), no racking, ageing in one year old 500ltr barrels, no fining or filtration help to produce this beautiful wine. All finesse, it has a very delicate colour, silky structure, no impact from oak, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with an energetic fresh zing, tannins well knitted in. For drinking now to 2023.
