Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granit
Site : The area of production covers 39 villages in the Northern part of the Beaujolais region. Among all those villages are the famous 10 "Crus" of the Beaujolais : Moulin à Vent, Chiroubles, Régnié, Chenas, Saint Amour, Fleurie, Morgon, Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly et Julienas.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour with purple nuances. Intense aromas of fresh red berries (red-currant) mixed with spices Supple and generous. Refreshing fruit combination in the aftertaste mixed with a hint of liquorice.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "Charcuterie", regional meals and mild cheeses.
