Manoir du Carra
Cuvée des Jean
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
This blend is vinified with a very special care towards nature. It refers to the family tradition since the first son of each generation of the family is called « Jean ».
Nice ruby colour, subtle small red fruits aromas. Full bodied with a nice attack on the palate. An elegant wine which leaves long lasting aromas. This wine can easily be kept up to 4 or 5 years, it will then reveal “pinot style” aromas.
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.
