Domaine des Terres Vivantes Beaujolais-Village Gamay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This tiny farm in the gracefully rolling hills of the Beaujolais-Village area of Charpenay resides just south of the Beaujolais crus and produces wine from organically grown grapes and bread from organically grown wheat. For both of these artisanal products, the naturally occurring ambient yeasts in the air play an integral role. No lesser role is performed by the stewards of these fields, Ludovic and Marie Gros, who with the occasional assistance of their four children (ages 8 to 16) take no short cuts in striving for the authentic traditional expression of Beaujolais. 'La Lutine' comes from alluvial silt and sandy soils and the fruit is bright, forward and pretty.
