Domaine les Capréoles Beaujolais Villages Lantignié "L'Amourgandise" '17

Domaine des Capréoles is one of Beaujolais' emerging rockstar winemakers of the region. Established in 2014, Capréoles works with fruit from the Régnié Cru, Lantignié (Beaujolais Villages) and recently started purchasing some fruit from the Brouilly Cru. The word “capreoles” comes from the Old French and means vine tendrils. An agronomist and oenologist by training, Cédric and his family purchased the 250 year old property and the vines that surround it, currently 5.5 hectares with vines up to 80 years old. Cédric farms organically and is very attentive to a varietal such as Gamay that requires attention and specific growing regiments, much like its genetic parent, Pinot Noir. Granite soils allow such low-yields to be created, as the vines pushes its way through such coarse, dense soils to nutrition. Each selection is so micro-climate based, showcasing various levels of minerality, depending on the type of granite and soil, and through different characters of fruit from red to black to ripe and fresh to tart and reserved. Each wine showcases brilliant personality. The "l'Amourgandise" is a parcel of land that is technically in Lantignié, between Régnié and Morgon, where there are high amounts of red and pink granite and some limestone. Majority of the grapes are destemmed and go in tank. Afterward, 25% rests in large oak barrels, for additional structure to the overall composition. The result is bright, fresh fruit that is delectable and enticing on both the nose and palate; violets and blue fruit round the wine out bringing it to a finessed wine of such purity and subtle depth. Chill it down a bit, drink it outside.
