Tasting Notes

A heady perfume of freshly picked irises and peonies drift above the crushed berry fruit nose. The fleshy, luscious, cherry flavours and hints of rose are typically vivacious, backed up with a touch of spice and good depth.

In the vineyard

'Arenite' is the terroir of pinky, crumbly sandstone of the La Madone vineyards, rated as one of the best vineyards in Fleurie. Goblet trained vines on the east/south east facing vineyards lying are below the Chapel of the Madonna at the top of the hill. Gamay Noir vines range from 40 to 90 years of age.

In the winery

Grapes are hand-picked and whole-berry fermented for 8-10 days (traditional maceration carbonique) followed by a further 2 or 3 days on the skin to assist with aromas. No use of cultured yeasts. Pressed after 8-10 day cuvaison. First press wine returned to wine and left for 8 months before bottling.

Food Recommendations

In winter match with a roast leg of lamb; during the summer, chill and serve with roast or barbecue chicken or pork.
