Domaine Richard Rottiers- 2017
A very fine Beaujolais-Villages from granite terroir situated next to the Moulin-a-Vent appellation. Carbonic maceration with three months in oak to help round the tannins. Tremendous fruit impact, all fresh cherry and blackberry, it is a very comforting wine.
Domaine Richard Rottiers
Richard took over 5 hectares of vineyard in 2007, with vines all between 40-80 years old, converting to organics in 2012. Centred around the Moulin-a-Vent area, on pink granite soils, where manganese seams can be found, which aare thought to produce the typical aromas of violet and iris in the wines.
