Domaine Sauveterre

Mâcon, Bourgogne

Noir de Creuse Noire


From just over a hectare of Gamay vineyards in Leynes, where the Mâconnais meets Beaujolais. Planted in 1946, the vines grow over basalt amongst woodlands at the foot of a volcanic mountain range. The grapes were fermented as whole bunches for two months, before being pressed off to old barrels to rest for nine months. Dark and deep, this is a complex, powerful expression of the grape.
