Beaujolais soils are predominantly decomposed granite, with pockets of blue volcanic rock.
The Clos de la Roilette, a lieu-dit in the village of Fleurie, covers nine hectares of one of the best slopes in the Beaujolais Crus. The clos has an eastern exposure, borders the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, and produces beautiful wines when young and can age 5-10 years, depending on the vintage.
Pairing Ideas: Gamay is an easy and flexible dancing partner. Gamay’s mellow fruity flavors make it a rare red wine equally capable of pairing with delicate dishes like fish, and salty, caramelized foods like roasted poultry, and aged cheeses.
