Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and light

Its dark ruby color announces a nose of red fruits. The palate is balanced, round, bold and nervous with character and melted tannins. Crispy wine.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The gamay grapes are handpicked and fully (without a destemming or crushing process) thrown into hermetic tanks that are saturated with carbon-dioxide. This “carbonic” method helps to obtain wines that can be appreciated early on.

Domain and appellation

  • Beaujolais AOC

    Internationally recognized, the Beaujolais appellation is Burgundy’s southernmost appellation. This AOC stands among the region's flagships appellations along with Beaujolais-Villages et Beaujolais Supérieur (or cru).

     

    • Terroir: Stretched on 9,400 hectares, the vineyards lay on diverse terroirs with a dominance of limestone-clay and silty-clay soils.

     

    • Viticulture: The gamay is the only grape variety used for the production of AOC Beaujolais wines. Its planting density is tight with an average of 6000/8000 plants per hectare. Spur pruning methods are commonly used.

     

    • Vinification: Carbonic and semi-carbonic macerations are characteristic of Beaujolais wines and aim at highlighting the wine fruit-forward aromas. Those methods help to create wines that will be available early on in primeur (Beaujolais Nouveau). The Beaujolais can also age traditionally in oak barrels. The maceration period will vary from 4 to 5 days for primeur wine to 8 to 12 days for age-worthy wines.
