Description

Details

Gautier Marion is the fifth generation of the family to manage Domaine de la Couvette, tucked into the gently undulating countryside of Southern Beaujolais. If you could picture what a quintessentially small french producer should look like then Gautier's property would come very close. He takes great pride in making wines in the traditional carbonic macerated style using his trusty, old concrete vats, which he uses to age the wines as well. Respecting not only the winemaking traditions, but also their 11 hectares of land and the vines that are up to 50 years old, they demonstrate their commitment by making a fully organic Beaujolais - which is full of ripe red fruit, spicy, earthy notes and a lovely smooth minerality.

Vineyards
Working in respect for the environment, Gautier is keen to show that even the most traditional of French regions can produce wine in an organic fashion.

Vinification
After a manual harvest, carbonic maceration takes about four days. The grapes are then slowly pressed and a cold and traditional vinification is performed. Fermented and aged in cement tank.

Tasting Notes
