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 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and 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 purple colour. Refreshing aromas of red berries (red currant) on a hint of spices. Well-balanced and well-shaped. Refined tannins. Long and aftertaste with spicy nuances.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "Charcuterie", barbecues and all sorts of mild cheeses.
