Origin

This wine is from “Villages” sector in Beaujolais, which lies to the north of the region on distinctive pink granite soil. This wine is a step up from simply “Beaujolais AOC”; yields are lower and micro climatic influences more favourable.

Producer

Domaine Manoir du Carra is a family estate which is run today by Frédéric and Damien, members of the fifth generation of the Sambardier family. From 4 hectares in 1962, the surface of the estate has now grown to over 37 hectares from the best limestone clay plots from south Beaujolais to the Crus located in the northern part of the vineyard. They have now received the ‘High Environmental Value’ certification which rewards environmentally-friendly practices.

Grape Variety

100% Gamay.

Old vines (50 years plus). Hand harvested grapes (by law) with traditional skin-juice contact for about 2 weeks. Then aged on fine lees in old oak casks for 3-4 months. As “Non Filtré” means bottles unfiltered, the aim is to capture all the purity and fruity vitality of the wine.

Food Match

Serve cool (it really lifts the fruity notes) – and with a plate of cured meats and hams, or a nice plate of vegetable crudités. Equally enjoy on its own as an aperitif.
