Beaujolais Villages Les Amis – 2017

Beaujolais Villages is produced in a specific area of the Beaujolais region by 1250 growers. It was the first appellation to use the « Village » denomination. Allowed for 38 villages and 3 areas having distinctive specifities, these fruity and bodied wines give a good expression of their terroirs. Vineyards often lie on the upper parts of steep hillsides. These tasty red wines are an intermediary between the lightness of Beaujolais AOC and the prestige of the 10 Crus, located more to the north.

描述

Soils

Granitic and sandy soils. The soils are lighter, acidic, with a lot of sand and fewer argils.

Climate

Temperate with a favourable sunlight, but with high variations due to conflicts between ocean, continental and Mediterranean influences.

Winemaking

In full bunch, the Beaujolais vinification. Vatting lasts 4 to 6 days. Following the first alcoholic fermentation, the grape is pressed. Both juices are blended for the second fermentation: this malo-lactic fermentation makes the wine more supple and remove the excess of acidity.

Varietal

Gamay 100%.
