Domaine de la Rocaillere Beaujolais Vielles Vignes
Domaine de la Rocaillère is a 20 hectares property owned and managed by Vincent Fontaine, with history dating back to the 1800s. This is Beaujolais made in a traditional way with a proportion of whole bunches undergoing semi-carbonic maceration and ageing in a mix of concrete and stainless steel.
Vincent continues to honour the traditional method of production; stems are retained, grapes undergo semi-carbonic maceration and wines are aged in stainless steel and concrete. He makes a classic, fruit driven Beaujolais Vieilles Vignes with a fine mineral character which allows for some ageing in bottle. The vines for this wine average 65 years old and are grown on a mixture of blue granite and clay-limestone soils.
