Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granite
Site : Area of production located in the commune of Fleurie in the Rhône department.
The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced crunchy red wines with very pure aromas.
Tasting : Bright purple colour. Intense aromas of red berries (raspberry), liquorice and violet on a hint of spices. Complex, generous and well-balanced. Dense texture with fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste with spicy nuances.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "Charcuterie", barbecues and all sorts of mild cheeses.
