Louis Tête Coteaux du Lyonnais Antique Bellum Rouge 2018

Louis Tête Coteaux du Lyonnais Antique Bellum Rouge is the cream of the crop. The elite of the Coteaux du Lyonnais appellation. Beautiful deep red colour. Subtle and complex bouquet of blackcurrant, raspberry, pepper and liquorice. Fine mouthfeel with melting tannins, juicy acidity and good length. Harmonious red fruit, black pepper and liquorice spice flavours.

100% Gamay. The fruit comes from a micro-terroir made up of the best plots in the finest vintages. The vineyard in the Coteaux du Lyonnais AOP enjoys an ideal southern exposure, ensuring maximum fruit ripeness and consistency of quality. The vines grow in sand and granite soils. 

The fruit for this wine comes from Louis Tête's vineyard in the southern most wine growing region in Burgundy, Beaujolais et Lyonnais. At Les Dépôts, a few kilometers from the historic capital of Beaujolais, the Tête family has been creating wines since the beginning of the 19th century.
