Manual harvest

 

Selective sorting of the harvested grapes before vatting on a sorting table, after thinning or ‘green harvest’ if necessary.

This Beaujolais-Villages is made using grapes from a plot of old vines in a locality called « Colette ».

They make the most of a South-Southeast facing slope with an average gradient of 20%. The well-drained soil gives us bunches of small grapes (natural millerandage or ‘hen and chickens’) and excellent health ; This makes long vatting possible (9 to 10 days) in whole bunches, to draw out supple, silky tannins while retaining beautiful fruitiness through strict temperature control.

Bursting with small fruit aromas and flavours in its youth, over time this wine evolves to really ripe, almost jammy fruit.

Enjoy this Beaujolais-Villages with :

- A platter of delicatessen meats

- Red meat

- Our regional cheeses (goat)
Serve between 13° and 14°.
