Review CLOS DE HAUTE COMBE JULIENAS 2014
CLOS DE HAUTE COMBE JULIENAS 2014
"Parcels are planted on rocky slopes, on grades up to 15-35%. The soils at Haute Combe is shale and granite with clay veins, and are amongst the oldest soils in Beaujolais. Vines are an average of 45 years old. The Domaine practices lutte raisonnée, and all grapes are hand-harvested. Wines undergo semi-carbonic maceration with whole berries for ten days, using only indigenous yeasts. The grapes are pressed pneumatically, alcoholic fermentation occurs in and wooden vats. The wine is then racked and put back into vats on the fine lees, where it is aged for six to twelve months before bottling."
