Tasting Notes

The La Salomine is a single vineyard, which produces wines of exceptional quality in the purest Burgundian style, balancing finesse and structure.

Points of Distinction
  • Burgundian in style, the authentic and original style of Beaujolais: no carbonic maceration, each plot vinified in small vats, with cold maceration followed by a long 8-12-day fermentation with gentle “pigeage.”
