From the distributor, "From a parcel of 40 year-old "young" vines. Though the terroir of Bugey is totally distinct, there's something curiously Beaujolais about this cuvee. A juicy and rustic gamay. 

Named after Vera Rubin, the second female astronomer. This would be the most 'wild' of his 3 wines, a combination of 80yr old vines and 40yr old vines, both playing a key role."
