Memoria Vieilles Vignes 2015 Louis Tête - Beaujolais

This wine is a part of our Haute Couture range. It reveals Gamay’s exceptional character. Assisted by a dozen growers, we have selected parcels from our hillside vineyards, managed according to specific requirements. The grapes are hand-picked when fully ripened, thereby allowing us to increase the crisp and fresh character of our wines made from Gamay. The Decanter World Wine Awards (May 2015) has attributed a silver medal to Memoria.
Memoria means memory in Latin, to pay tribute to the cellar winemakers founders.
