Name: Jacky Gauthier Domaine de Colette Beaujolais Villages Coteaux de Colette
Sub-Region: Beaujolais Villages
Producer: Domaine de Colette
From the Winery:
"This Beaujolais-Villages is made using grapes from a plot of old vines in a locality called "Colette".
They make the most of a South-Southeast facing slope with an average gradient of 20%. The well-drained soil gives us bunches of small grapes (natural millerandage or ‘hen and chickens’) and excellent health ; This makes long vatting possible (9 to 10 days) in whole bunches, to draw out supple, silky tannins while retaining beautiful fruitiness through strict temperature control.
Bursting with small fruit aromas and flavours in its youth, over time this wine evolves to really ripe, almost jammy fruit."
