Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granite
Site : One of the most famous crus of the Beaujolais. The area of production covers the communes of Odenas, Saint-Lager, Quincié, Cercié, Charentay et Saint-Etienne-La-Varenne in the Rhône département.
The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine.
Tasting : Bright red colour with purple nuances. Delicate floral fragrances and aromas of red berries mixed with spicy nuances. Well-balanced, taut and fruity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "charcuterie", barbecue and all sorts of mild cheeses.
