Gamay - Traboules - Domaine Clusel-Roch - Coteaux du Lyonnais
This wine is made from Gamay, a grape you probably know very well if you drink Beaujolais.
Coteaux du Lyonnais is the appellation around Lyon, based in the south of Beaujolais. It produce richer, riper Gamay with darker fruits.
The wine is medium bodied and very enjoyable with soft berry aromas.
Traboules is the local name which design little streets in the old Lyon, where we can find all the best local restaurants, les "Bouchons" .
That wine is ideal with food, very easy to match with plenty of different dishes included cheese and charcuterie boards from the local region of Lyon.
We would advice to drink the wine slightly chilled.
Guillaume Clusel Roch is now running this small estate. Now fully certified organic, most work in the vineyards is done manually, without the use of any chemical fertilisers.
A third of the grapes are fermented as whole bunches while the rest are de-stemmed. Fermented with native yeasts and aged for six months in stainless steel tanks. A juicy red wine with plenty of currants and raspberries well balanced with a refreshing acidity and a persistent finish. Delicious!
