Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granite and sand
Site : In the very heart of the Beaujolais, in the village of Fleurie. The grapes are issued from 2 specific plots "Champagne" and "Les Deux Rivières", ideally oriented South.
The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer.
Tasting : Bright purple colour. Intense aromas of red berries (red currant) on a hint of spices. Generous and well-balanced. Dense texture. Refined tannins. Long aftertaste with spicy nuances.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "Charcuterie", barbecues and all sorts of mild cheeses.
