Complex nose with black fruits, licorice and honey aromas. Lengthy palate, rich and suave with roundness and a very harmonious structure.
The Domaine de la Calèche is located in Fleurie and belongs for generations to the Gauthier family. The domaine has a surface area of 5 hectares and is situated on clay soils. The major part of the plots of 60 year old vines are exposed on the South-East which allows the Gamay to reach beautiful ripeness at the end of summer. The soils are plowed by horse and the harvest is still made by hand.
Hand harvested with strict selection in the vineyards. Traditional and semi-carbonic maceration with long fermentation between 10 to 12 days under controlled temperatures.
Pair with terrines, coq au vin, grilled fishes and cheeses.
