Sarnin-Berrux - 2021 - Le Bojo Sutra

Gamay

Burgundy/Beaujolais, France

Sarnin-Berrux is a spirited duo of winemakers who sources grapes from a variety of organic sites spanning Burgundy—from Savigny-les-Beaune to Chablis to Volnay. Their wines live in limbo. Like their makers, they engage the questions of things we take for granted - the difference between sun and light, and the distinction between synthetic and natural sulfur, which Jean-Pascal describes as a chasm. In his eyes, Burgundy is full of wine destroyed by too much synthetic sulfur: « ça brûle le nez » (it burns the nose). Instead, Sarnin-Berrux has devoted the time and resources to convert natural volcanic sulfur into liquid sulfur, which has the same protective properties as the synthetic but none of the abrasive. What results is a rarity: the pure, naked expression of something decidedly classic. (SuperGlou)
