Details

Fusion Gamay No Control, Vincent Marie, biodynamic, low sulphur, lush, energetic Gamay. This is a Gamay from the central region of Auvergne, from Natural winemaker Vincent Marie. Bags of lush fruit as you'd expect from Gamay, but full of life and direction. The fermentation and carbonic maceration take place in fibre glass tanks before it is half aged in vat, half in 15 hl barrels for 8 months. No fining or filtration or added sulphur, leaving just 9mg/l in total. Fusion refers to his favourite style of music, but also a nod to the different styles of Gamay in Beaujolais and Auvergne.


No Control consists of 5 hectares of vines in the Auvergne featuring the following grape varieties: Gamay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Sylvaner and Pinot Auxerrois which Vincent uses to make 5-7 cuvees. No Control also has an impressively diverse range of terroirs born from recent and former volcanic activity. This gives the wines typical features and a specific mineral taste. Farming respects living organisms, vegetable matter, soil and health. Since 2013, the vines have been in conversion to organic agriculture. Vincent’s work with Patrick Meyer allowed him to gain and understanding and experience of biodynamics. Each year the plots get the basic biodynamic preps including 500 (cow-horn manure) and 501 (horn silica).

  1. How good is this wine?

    Absolutely love this wine. Not too heavy, fruity and a bit strange. We have gone through about 12 bottles of this, from a few different years, and have always loved it. Super fun wine to drink.

    I served this at a tasting and was somewhat disappointed, having heard great things about the producer.

    Maybe it's still a little young, or perhaps we caught it on an off-day, but it didn't have the depth of fruit or minerality (sorry, hate that word but couldn't think of anything better) I was expecting. There wasn't even anything weird to spark conversation.

    Still, it's a perfectly decent wine - just not as exciting as I'd wanted.
