Clos de la Roilette MAGNUM Cuvee Tardive Fleurie

100% Gamay from the oldest vines, which are from 80 years on up, on heavy clay soils with relatively little granite and quite a lot of the iron-like mineral manganese. Vinification is traditional, semi-carbonic Beaujolais style.  Maceration lasts around 18 days for the Cuvée Tardive, & the wine is aged in large, old oak foudres for about 9 months before bottling.
