Volcanic Promotion - LE TRACTEUR VERT

From the volcanic soils of the Côtes d’Auvergne!

The perfect light red for summer, this fresh 100% Gamay comes from the heart of the volcanic Côtes d’Auvergne. The vineyards of this little known region extend 80km from north to south along the Puys mountains, straddling 400ha of sunbathed hillside designated Côtes d’Auvergne.  Auvergne wines offer a superb minerality and freshness and their volcanic origins are immediately obvious, from the ash, lava and basalt desposits at the core of this terroir.  This wine comes from Desprat Saint-Verny, the only wine co-operative in the region.

This elegant Gamay undergoes a traditional fermentation in stainless steel tanks, with a short maceration.  Fresh, with ripe red fruits on the nose, which follow through to a light and juicy palate.  Delicious served as an aperitif accompanied by a charcuterie board, or with Spaghetti Bolognese, also terrific when partnered with grilled meats.
