Elisa Guerin 'Les Thorins' Moulin-a-Vent 2018
- In stock, ready to ship
One of Elisa's first wines was from her family's parcel called 'Les Thorins' that includes some 80-90 year-old vines on sandy granite. This vintage, even with age on it, still has a youthful playfulness. Compared to her other wines, it's the most 'natty' and wild, with some feral, edgy acidity. This is mixed with darker, juicier notes, however, showing off brambly raspberry and cranberry skin texture. This wine is not about polish, it's alive, raw, and charmingly rustic. Chill it down and pass it around with your friends.
Elisa Guerin grew up in Beaujolais and enjoyed helping her neighbors the vineyards. They told her she should be a winemaker. Her neighbors were named Foillard. After working for another Beaujolais legend, Yvon Metras, she made her first vintage in 2018.
She converted her father's vines to organic practices, and though he sold his fruit to Georges Dubouef, he took good care of the vineyard over the years. Elisa's first customers in Paris were Le Verre Volé and Le Baratin, so she is one to keep your eye on, as they will not stick around in NY unnoticed for long. Jonathan Kemp
