Beaujolais-Villages, “En Chatenay”
The vines of the vineyard “En Chatenay” are an average age of fifty years planted in soils composed of sand and schist 200 meters outside of Saint-Amour. At harvest the grapes undergo a brief cold maceration before pressing and fermentation. The cuvaison is about 12 days in length; both pigeage and remontage are practiced, the extent of which, however, is determined by the particular conditions of the vintage. After fermentation, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 8 or so months before bottling. This wine is deeply colored, concentrated and firm with savory notes of ripe cherries (red and black). Only 150 cases of this lovely red are imported for the US market.
