Description

Producer Profile

Domaine de Colette is in the small village of Lantignié, regarded as the top village in the cru of Regnié.

Run by the humble Jacky Gauthier, it was founded by his father René. Gauthier studied enology at the tender age of 17 and immediately started working with his father in the vineyards. Their steep pink granite vineyards are home to vines of about 45 years old, but one plot, called Colette, reaching over 80 years. The grapes undergo carbonic maceration followed by a gentle pressing. A pleasant ruby-red colour, the wine presents fresh red fruit flavours in its youth, but over time evolve into delightful complex ripe fruit flavours.

Viticulture

The vineyards are cultivated using Haute Valeur Environnementale, a stricter practice than Lutte Raisonnée and very minimal intervention as Jacky’s approach is ecological. Only organic manure is used as well as grassing over and shallow ploughing. The soil is granitic and the bush trained vines average 40 years old. The harvest is all carried out by hand with yields never exceeding 45 hl per ha.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment
