Simply beyond good - this wine is an incredibly elegant take on the Côte de Brouilly - 70% whole cluster and 30% crushed - the wine has a wonderful classic balance of fruit and structure. Steep, granitic vineyards in the Côte make for some spectacular expression. You will love it.
L’oiseau de Passage is the brainchild of Julien Frappa, a committed organic vigneron and micro garagiste working in some of the most respected crus and terroirs of Beaujolais. Until recently Julien was a part time winemaker; also holding down a job at a Lyon museum while working with friends and mentors across Beaujolais to learn the natural farming techniques and cellar practices that make his wines a superb addition to the Barrel Down portfolio.
