The opinion of the sommelierThis month, I have the pleasure to share with you one of my recently found jewel, which comes from one of the smallest appellation that gathers only 10 winemakers : Châteaumeillant. The wines from this terroir are appreciated for their gourmet nose of cherry, plum and pepper. On the palate, the aromas are fresh and reveals a very beautiful structure with crisp that I enjoy deeply.
TerroirThe vines of Nairaud Suberville are grown on a sandy-clay soil. This terroir is typical of the appellation and it is also ideal for the gamay variety. Granitic and not very deep, the soil brings a good drainage to the vine and produces a wine with structure and body.
Grape varietyBerry Good is mainly composed of gamay. Originally from Burgundy, it is the first grape variety of the Chateaumeillant appel-lation. It brings freshness and finesse to the cuvée with aromas of red fruits and spices (pepper). Blended with pinot noir, the wine shows a greater finesse and have a nice balance.
VintageThanks to a soft winter and a hot summer, the 2015 vintage is a success. A period of drought allowed to keep good sanitary conditions in the vineyards. Thanks to a rainy episode at the end of August, the berries could grow and gain volume. This phenomenon resulted in round and crunchy red wines, with deep fresh fruity flavours.
