Grape variety : 100% Gamay.
Vinification : Semi-carbonic maceration for about 5 days. This is a traditional technique in the Beaujolais region which consists in vinifying the grapes as whole bunches. Fermentation thus begins inside the grapes themselves in order to capture all the flavour of the fruit.
Maturing : Kept in stainless steel vats until the spring.
Tasting notes : A ruby-coloured robe. The bouquet exudes red fruit notes which are enhanced by delicious, fresh flavours and a supple, delicate texture in the mouth. Very drinkable in the 2 years following harvest.
Serving temperature : 10-12°C
