Frédéric Sornin makes this wine in conjunction with his 13 year old son Victor. Frédéric is a super talented and established wine maker, but makes this wine under his son's name because he makes it in conjunction with Victor. The grapes come from vines that are 50-60 years old in the vicinity of Morgon. The vines are farmed naturally, they graze sheep in the vineyards, the grapes are hand harvested and wild fermented, and only a tiny bit of sulfur is added at bottling. 

"Aroma: Sornin's Beaujolais smells like red fruits-wild cherries and some black raspberries. There's a little bit of cranberry, currant, and a tiny bit of a beeswaxy aroma. There's some black pepper and "walking in a wood" kind of aroma too.
Taste: The primary taste is rich bright berry fruit and almost no tannin.  It's a neat balance between having vivid red fruit but not a heavy body. The Sornin Beaujolais has a slightly angular kind of body and a crispy kind of texture from all the granite soil the Gamay grows in. The wine starts with lots of dark wild fruit, then there's some woodsy black pepper on the mid palate, and the finish is very clean and just kind of washes away. This is an absolutely excellent example of what Gamay can do when it's really treated well in the vineyard and a talented wine maker shepherds it through fermentation."
