Trenel Beaujolais Cuvée Rochebonne
This crisp and flamboyant wine has a beautiful ruby color. Its nose mingles the aromas of red fruits and spices (cherry, raspberry and pepper). It is very well balanced on the palate with melted tannins.
Pairs beautifully with local cooked meats, and ouillette or soft cheese like camembert or brie. At the end of the meal, its fruity aromas will be a perfect match with red berry pie.
Maceration of whole bunches for 8 to 10 days. 5 months’ ageing in cement tanks. The wine is unfined and lightly filtered before bottling.
Grapes: Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc
Alcohol by Volume: 12.5%
Region/Appellation: Beaujolais/AOP Beaujolais
The regional appellation "Beaujolais" was recognized in 1937 and is the most extensive of the region. It produces fresh and fruity wines, perfect for the first days of summer. Trénel's Beaujolais Cuvée Rochebonne is produced on the east of the "Pierres Dorées" area, on three parcels east oriented and facing the Mont Blanc. They’re located in the village of Lucenay and are particularly ancient: the older one has been planted in 1922. The soil is very clayey and gives roundness and structure to the wine.
