This is a Cru Beaujolais assembled from several great parcels within the Fleurie appellation. These are sites at high altitude (above 300 meters) and with light soils of decomposed pink granite. All fruit is manually harvested, rigorously sorted, fermented with natural yeasts, and aged in concrete vats and oak barrels for 10 months.

Harvest Note
This was a very warm and early vintage with a slight lack of moisture which reduced the harvest volumes while ensuring complexity and phenolic ripeness.
Tasting Note
This wine exudes dark fruit and floral aromas with hints of ground coffee. Bold and expansive on the palate, the flavor evolution is shaped by substantial yet fine tannins and tangy acidity over the long finish.
Food Pairing
Ideal for both fine and casual cuisines, anything from grilled meats or stews to barbeque.
