Appellation: Mâcon Cruzille
Grape variety: Gamay
Ageing: 11 months in oak barrels
Cellaring: This wine always needs two or three years ageing before mellowing, and can be kept for 5 to 10 years, depending on the vintage.
Characteristics: We use the short pruning method en cordon Royat for all the Gamay vines on the estate, to restrain the natural vigorous growth of this grape variety. Grown on the clayey limestone soils of the Mâconnais, this wine has very particular peppery and spicy notes. Beaumont is an emblematic cuvee of the domaine, a real Gamay with a Burgundy style.
