Organic and biodynamic viticulture, low yields, hand harvested, indigenous yeasts, low to no sulfur, fermentations in cuve, wines age in barrel. 50 years vine age. Nuits d’Ivresse “Drunken Nights” is the name of a special cuvée of selected old vines from top clay and limestone sites in Bourgueil. The wine is vinified in barriques and kept in wood for a year then bottled the following December a little over a year after harvest. This wine is an homage to the methods of Jules Chauvet and does not see a drop of sulfur throughout its lifetime (harvest, vinification, bottling). Therefore it must be drunk quickly or stored in the dark at a proper temperature (14°C or less).
