I was fortunate to first taste Jaufré’s wines at the Beysang/Hurtubise household in south Beaujolais, which a friend of Raphael's had brought straight from the cellar, bottled specially in one of their recycled litre bottle. It was a captivating introduction to a very exciting new producer, a Gamay d'Auvergne brimming with life that stayed fresh and delicious all day open (and into the next). Jaufré Mas, is a long time friend of Raphael & Emelie's from their time working in the Auvergne and his day job is spent working for Patrick Bouju running the cellar and working the vines.

He has now started his own project with the help of Patrick and other luminaries of the region, finding four small parcels spread across one hectare in total and building a very DIY cellar in a barn at the back of his house. The first money went on an expensive pump, every year he will add and improve, while still working for Patrick.

Hey So! is Gamay d'Auvergne, planted on granite soils facing north
and aged around sixty years old. In the hot dry year of 2022, he didn't need to treat the vines and the grapes were very healthy, he gave it 3 weeks whole cluster fermentation, before pressing and racking clear before winter when fermentation has been completed. Bottled in August 2023.

A more linear, lifted expression of the varietal, this opens up beautifully over a few hours and even into the next day. Delicious!
