The vineyard slope’s south-easterly aspect gives this cuvée elegance that is very representative of AOC Fleurie. The terroir of Poncié lends the wine quite pronounced characteristics.
There is a manual harvest when the grapes reach full ripeness. The wine is made using traditional Beaujolais vinification - Beaujolaise with 'rack and return', 10-day maceration in vats, no yeast seeding, no chaptalisation, minimum SO2 and pneumatic pressing. The wine is then allowed to mature for 6 months in old oak tuns.
Shiny crimson with deep purple tints.Nose - delicate and floral, fully blown rose, peony, violet. Palate - the silky Poncié tannins give suppleness, delicacy and elegance. Really flavourful. Over and above red fruit, you will find notes of toast and undergrowth with an end that is often peppery.
