Domaine de Bel-Air Beaujolais Villages 2008
By keeping with tradition and staying in tune with the terroir of the region, they seek to produce highly expressive wines that balance tradition and modern practices. Owing to the steep vineyard slopes (20 to 38% grade), almost all vineyard work is done by hand.
For the past five years, the domaine has followed integrated vine growing techniques which require a great deal of observation and vine inspection, thus enabling avoidance of systemic treatments. The average vine age in the Beaujolais-Villages is 50 years.
