$44.99

Only 10 left!

Alcohol: 14%

Grape(s): Gamay

Localization: Burgundy, France

Tasting Notes: This cuvée gives off myriad aromas like wild raspberry, cherry, violet and a hint of blood orange. Supremely balanced with an expressive nose of raspberry, rose petal and plum which flows onto the palate.

Notes: After the grapes are harvested by hand, they are sorted and macerated in concrete vats. Gentle stirring is carried out for 10 days with no additives. The maturation lasts for 15 months in barrels. This wine is very supple and elegant.

Food Pairing: Pairs perfectly with wild game terrine, rabbit in boujalais, duck a l'orange

The Domain: Marc Delienne learnt the viticultural trade at the Trévallon domain in Provence with Eloi Durrbach. In 2015, he purchased a property with 14 hectares in Fleurie, believing strongly in the region's potential for growth in fine wine. He set out to convert the domain to organic production, then to biodynamics in 2016. The domain has now been fully certified for 2 years. Since this wine makers first vintages, he has been making flavourful and balanced wines with delicate tannins and notes of red fruits and blueberry. One to watch in Beaujolais!
