A purplish color. Juicy and explosive fruity nose: strawberry and cherry. A smooth wine with fine and harmonious tannins.
Hand harvest. Traditional semi-carbonic maceration where the whole grapes and stalks begin to ferment in a concrete tank. Alcoholic fermentation starts with the fruit in solid phase. The duration of maceration depends on what type of wine we want: short maceration for Beaujolais-Villages to keep freshness and a fruity flavor. Twice a day, we ride up the juice to keep the yeast activity high and to extract the flavors. Then we crush the grapes and put immediately together the juices from the maceration and from the crushing. The alcoholic fermentation finishes in liquid phase and then the malolactic fermentation could start. The wine is ready to age in tank or in barrel.
