100% Gamay grapes

vineyards situation – Made with 100% Gamay grapes, our « cuvée » comes mainly comes from the Rhône and Saône-et-Loire region (Lantigné, Lancié and Régnié) : the very best location for Beaujolais-Villages.

characteristics – The terroir is composed of granite as well as clay and calcareous.
Among the 55.000 acres (22.000 hectares) of vineyards planted in the Beaujolais region , about 15.000 acres (6.000 hectares) are under the name Beaujolais Villages « Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée » which is the intermediary appellation between the Beaujolais and the 10 Crus.

wine making – The Beaujolais-Villages “Combe aux Jacques” is vinified the same way as the other wines from the region: with a semi carbonic maceration.
Our Beaujolais-Villages yield comes from three sources. One portion of our wine comes from the Régnié cru, another portion is purchased from quality wine maker, and the last is a portion of purchased grapes which we vinify ourselves in our dedicated winery in the south of Beaujolais.

winemaker’s comments / gastronomy –

The long maceration will allow a good extraction. The wine will have a good structure and will therefore be able to age several years.
This Beaujolais-Villages “Combe aux Jacques” must be drunk quite cool in order to protect the delicious aromas of fruits and the delicate freshness which is the signature of this wine.

Ideal with delicatessen and Italian foods.
