La Côte Appellation d’origine contrôlée

Imagine this: why not make a wine that is light, fruity, quite refreshing and yet tightly honed?

We want to give Gamay back the rightful place it once held and which it continues to deserve: that of an uncomplicated wine that makes the heart sing but doesn’t burden the head!

Our Domaine La Colombe Gamay is the result of a limited-yield harvest where attention is focused on keeping the freshness of this grape: it is a wine with a bouquet that is intense, rich and peppery with aromas of red currant, black currant and cherry.

In mouth, it’s a fresh and dynamic wine that can be drunk young, when the fruit dominates.

In the cellar, the limit of the intervention is the research for the authentic expression. Personality grape varieties, fullness of aromas here offer a perfect balance delivering a full and immediate pleasure.

VINTAGE

Harvest on September 12th 2023

Spring 2023 is characterized by frequent precipitation. Unfortunately, where ther is rain, there is mildew pressure, a fungus which has caused some damage to young leaves and future grape clusters.

Luckily, in the beginning of June, the weather changed, and flowering took place in the best of conditions. The vines grew quickly, we wove the branches on the majority of our domaine. A colossal job that prevented the branches from falling without having to shear the apices. We thus limited the stress of the plant, promoted the rooting and maturation of its babies, the grapes.

The season continued with several virulent windstorms, fortunately without damaging the vines.

It’s time for the heat… In August, there was a heatwave, with temperatures reaching 36°C. However, on August 16th a nice and welcoming rain caused temperatures to drop and slowed down the ripening of the grapes. We could, therefore, start the harvest on September 12th with our loyal team of pickers.

Each vintage has its own twists and turns, its unique characteristics, which each time force us to react, understand, and… remain creative.

We were finally able to press healthy grapes, which gave us juices packed with flavour and joyful drinkability.

Le commentaire de Frédy Girardet
«Ce Gamay se marie parfaitement avec un papet de poireaux et pommes de terre, des endives au jambon, une potée de carottes et pommes de terre au lard ou différents ragoûts.»
