100% Gamay from 1.50 ha vineyard in Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières, in the heart of the Beaujolais-Villages appellation, 500 meters from the Brouilly crus. Organic Farming. Aged 12 months in vats, 30% in old oak barrels.
Intense dark garnet color with brilliant reflections. Complex, expressive and very flattering nose of raspberry jam, blackberry and blackcurrants. Aeration reveals other aromas: black cherry and cherries combined with a very light touch of menthol. Rich mouth in line with the olfactory sensations and with melted and coated tannins. Fresh finish with a touch of liquorice.
A noble pairing with meats in sauce and candied onions would be perfect.
