Olivier Ravier Beaujolais-Villages
Olivier Ravier Beaujolais-Villages is a lovely example of a generously flavoured Gamay showing intense aromas of red and black berried fruits, with notes of cassis. Beautifully balanced with an unctuous texture, silky tannins and a soft, mouth watering finish.
With over 42 years experience, Olivier Ravier is one of the most iconic and respected winemakers in Beaujolais. He is a former President of the Beaujolais growers association and has been appointed as an expert at the National Institute of the French wines appellation by the French government. His in-depth knowledge of the region, its climate, and the Gamay variety, is second-to-none. Living in the heart of
the Fleurie appellation, he produces wines which overflow with typicity from the Beaujolais terroir.
The grapes come from vineyards within the Beaujolais Villages appellation which is made up of 38 villages in the northern Beaujolais region. The climate is continental with cold winters and warm summers. The 20 year old vines are grown in granite, clay and chalky soils, which provide good drainage and are free standing bush vines pruned according to the traditional Gobelet method. The grapes are hand harvested.
This Beaujolais Villages was vinified in the traditional way, with a semi-carbonic maceration lasting for six to eight days. Fermentation was temperature controlled throughout and was followed by malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer style of wine.
