Beaujolais-Villages 2019, Domaine des Moriers
Domaine des Moriers was born from the passion of Beaujolais terroir, where Gamay reveals itself like nowhere else. Run by Arnaud Combier, a man with a solid background who had been making wine in both Mâcon and then in Languedoc. The estate is currently under conversion to organics having applied for their certification earlier this year, with biodynamics being the next step. "We are convinced that living soils and healthy grapes are paramount to produce energy-driven wines with personality."
In the cellar, Arnaud favours whole cluster vinifications which are carried out in concrete vats as it is the region's tradition. Generally he tends to avoid remontage and instead aims for a more gentle extraction. The length of the macerations varies depending on the wine but rarely exceed two weeks.
