Domaine des Coteaux d'Or l'Or des Fous Beaujolais Superieur 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"This wine is the first release of a partnership between the owner/winemaker M. Alexandre Chavanne and Luke Bauer, a young winemaker and negociant from Bugey. The vineyard is located in a lieu dit named "Graves" in Southern Beaujolais. Their vineyards, located on the Coteaux des Pierres Dorées, is known as “Little Tuscany” because of the yellow stones that fill the soils. Yellow stones...L'Or...get it?! Average age of the vines are 65 years old and the vinification is done sans soufre ajouté. Agriculture is completely organic, certified by Ecocert. The style of wine is more like Brouilly with savory gamay flavors; lots of structure. But no denying the tremendous quality that rivals some of the greats like Lapierre and Thivin in the Morgon appellation." - Importer
