Domaine des Pothiers Gamay "No. 6" '14

Domaine des Pothiers provides some of the oldest vineyard sites for the Côte Roannaise.  Domaine des Pothiers and the Paires family have been in the Villemontais for over 300 years!  Originally farmers, they began to replant with vineyards in the 1970s, with a shift towards viticulture as the family's newfound passion.

Today, the estate is primarily viticultural with 10 hectares of vines alongside maintaining a small herd of Limousin cows. The vineyards are all certified organic & biodynamic; the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts with maturation in cement.  

The Côte Roannaise is located in the far southern end of the Loire, this area is often considered the unofficial "11th Cru of the Beaujolais," just north of Lyon, but far away enough to be considered a part of the Loire Valley.  The region is dedicated to Gamay, found in classic soil types for the grape - granite, sand and gravel; its unique granite soils is big component in what gives way to its Beaujolais-like characteristics.  Here we find a bold, richer tone of fruit with a fresh black currant tinge and blackberry wrapped up in a soft, tannic structure.  We find this as a great pairing with poultry and seafood such as salmon, but you can serve these dishes with richer flavors of olives, mushrooms, and other savory accompaniments.
