Tasting Note:

The Traboules Coteaux du Lyonnais (the area west of Lyon) comes from the southern part of the appellation, not far from the River Rhône, centred around two villages, Millery and Orliénas. The slopes are south-east facing. The soils are granitic in the latter village and in the former sandy with large galet stones that serve to warm the soil and aid ripening of the Gamay grapes. After handpicking and fermentation with indigenous yeasts the wine is aged in steel tank before bottling. A joy-filled wine, pure pleasure. Soft but crystalline red forest berry fruits flecked with notes of rock salt. Precise fruity, digest, supple and juicy this is gratifying, light and mouth-watering.
