Winemaking Notes: Antoine and Pierre Joly farm their estate vineyards with biodynamic principles. The fruit for Flonflons is harvested by hand and destemmed before fermentation. Fermentation lasts 15 days and is spontaneous. Flonflons is then aged for 6-8 months in concrete tanks before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and with minimal SO2.

Added S02: 4mg (2016 vintage).

Tasting Notes: This is a fruit-forward, friendly and fresh Côtes du Rhône. With notes of red fruit and juicy berries, the Flonflons is bright on the nose and easy on the palate. This is a chillable red perfect for Thanksgiving!
