Château des Bachelards

Comtesse de Vazeilles 2018

Fleurie AOP

France - Beaujolais


The terroir of Fleurie is made up of 7 hectares of plots of land in a single block around the château, which have in common that they are on the very old mother rock of pink granite, feldspars, schists, micas and quartz of a very fine grain which gives the wine a lot of subtlety.

Grape variety :
100% gamay. Old vines of Gamay in massal selection from 60 to 80 years old.
Gravity harvesting, 10% whole grapes, vinification in rough concrete vats, 28-day maceration, 12-month ageing in stainless steel vats and 500-litre demi-muids in order to preserve both its freshness and its substance, indigenous yeasts. No carbonic or semi-carbonic maceration, nor thermovinification.

Tasting notes:
The colour is dark garnet with great brilliance. The nose is very elegant with a fine palette of peonies and spices. On the palate, the wine is floral and of great elegance. It is complex, dense and long, relatively firm, with a splendid mid-palate and fresh blackberry notes of great purity. The finish is still restrained by a tannic structure that is not aggressive and is wrapped in a beautiful silkiness. This wine has great potential with an astonishing bounce on the finish. The whole is airy and without the slightest rusticity. Its great silkiness allows it to be drunk now, but it has the potential to be kept for at least a dozen years.

Wine style :
Delicate and complex red wine

Food and wine pairing :
Pigeon stuffed with morels, fresh tagliatelle and Isigny fresh cream. Black Bigorre pork chop roasted in hay, grilled with rosemary.

Ageing potential :
12 years in your cellar.
