Manoir du Carra
Brouilly Terre de Combiaty'
Domaine Manoir du Carra is a family estate which is run today by Frédéric and Damien, members of the fifth generation of the Sambardier family.
From 4 hectares in 1962, the surface of the estate has now grown to over 37 hectares from the best limestone clay plots from south Beaujolais to the Crus located in the northern part of the vineyard.
As we constantly feel concerned about our terroir and environment, we have now received the “High Environmental Value” certification which rewards environmentally-friendly practices.
Lieu dit ” Combiaty ” in the village of saint Etienne la Varenne.
Nice ruby colour, subtle small red fruits aromas ( raspberry and wild strawberry) with floral hints ( hycainth violet). Full bodied with soft tannins this Brouilly has to be drunk young .
Soils have high acidity; they are meager and not very fertile.The pink granite soil gives character and personality to this wine. Vines are 50 years old planted in high density (13 000 vines per hectare). Manual Harvest.Selection of the best grapes on a vibrating sorting table. Then vatting of the entire bunches for a typical Beaujolais semi-carbonic maceration which lasts 10 to 12 days.Ageing lasts 3 to 4 months on fine lees in old oak casks to enhance micro-oxygenation. In the end, natural or cold static decanting.The wine is estate bottled.
