Domaine de Colette is in the small village of Lantignié, regarded as the top village in the cru. It's owned by Jacky and Evelyne Gauthier and is located is less than 1 kilometer from the border of Morgon.
The soils at Colette are worked organically in an effort to promote healthy and vigorous root systems. They limit vine treatments during the year and intervene only when completely necessary.
A green harvest is performed to give more concentrated grapes. Harvest is by hand, and only healthy grape clusters are emptied into the tank.
Domaine de Colette Vieilles Vignes Regnié
Regnié is located just south of Morgon and north of Brouilly. It is known as the fruitiest of the Beaujolais crus, and Colette’s old vine release exemplifies the forward, explosive aromas of Regnié and Colette itself.
Tasting notes: strawberry, raspberry, spice and an underlying granite-infused minerality combine to make this one hell of an enjoyable glass of wine, with or without a food accompaniment.
Domaine de Colette Coteaux de Colette Beaujolais Villages
This comes from a steep slope from which, on a clear day, Mount Blanc can be seen. 80 year-old vines, carbonic maceration followed by a gentle pressing, aging in cement tanks for 10 months and bottled without filtration for our gustatory pleasure.
