Clotaire Michal Libre Pensee Beaujolais France


100% Gamay

Clotaire is based in Saint Etienne la Varenne, a commune in the Beaujolais Villages located between Blace´ and Quincie´. The domaine is comprised of 1.8ha of centenarian vines and a further 1.4ha of 45-year-old vines which are planted on sandy-granite soils. Clotaire’s wines are richness and expressive in style, with the lift and purity of Beaujolais fruit through semi-carbonic maceration.

His wine used to be bottled under the Beaujolais-Village appellation but Clotaire has turned his back on the appellation because it made it difficult for him to make the more robust style of wine he loves. Libre Pensée is a blend of the younger parcels, with an average vine age of 45 years. The slow press, combined with ageing half the juice in barrels, adds some robustness to the wine.

Tasting notes: Black cherries, violets, game. Much richer than your typical Beaujolais.

Tasting notes: Some classic game dishes for sure, but also venison biryani would be great!
