100% Auvergne Gamay. This is a relatively new cuvée from the Madargues Cru in Riom. La Plage, meaning “the beach”, is completely sandy on top with limestone underneath. The vines are also trained en lyre. In 2017 the grapes from these vineyards were blended. The result – a wine with bright red sappy fruit and crunchiness.
Jean Maupertuis is the original natural winemaker of Auvergne. Bottles from first his estate, Domaine de Peyra, are now highly sought after collector's items.
