Manganese granite, eroded on the surface in the form of pink sands and forming a granite arena called ”gorrha”. South-East orientation; the plots are located in ”Les Roches”, ”La Delatte”, ”Aux Caves” & ”La Grande Charrière” climates.
Gamay noir à jus blanc
Average age: 55 years old, 10,000 plants / ha. Yield: 34 hl / ha
Durable and environmentally friendly
In whole grapes sorted without SO2 with daily punching down for 2.5 weeks. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts without artificial thermoregulation. Malolactic fermentation in foudres.
On lees, reductive in foudres without racking, with riddling without SO2 for 15 months.
Beautiful dark red color. It is floral (violets, roses) and fruity (raspberry) with hints of liquorice. It is a fleshy and powerful wine with a mineral tension due to manganese; it is elegant, charming and structured. Appreciable now but cut for keeping.
