Origin

This wine is from "Villages" sector in Beaujolais, which lies to the north of the region on distinctive pink granite soil. This wine is a step up from simply "Beaujolais AOC"; yields are lower and micro climatic influences more favourable.

Grape Variety

100% Gamay.

Old vines (50 years plus). Hand harvested grapes (by law) with traditional skin-juice contact for about 2 weeks. Then aged on fine lees in old oak casks for 3-4 months. As "Non Filtré" means bottles unfiltered, the aim is to capture all the purity and fruity vitality of the wine.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 12 months.

Producer

Manoir du Curra was founded in 1850; today, the Domaine covers 34 hectares and has been managed by the Sambardier Family for generations. Jean-Noël and his sons are currently managing all viticulture and winemaking, with a focus on preserving the traditions of both the region and the Domaine. Their philosophy is to respect the environment, whilst engaging selectively in new technologies and practices. They are a thoughtful and proud Domaine.

Food Match

Serve cool (it really lifts the fruity notes) - and with a plate of cured meats and hams, or a nice plate of vegetable crudités. Equally enjoy on its own as an aperitif.
