A fresh and mouth-watering nose bursting with crunchy red fruit from the Gamay grape and sweet spice, backed up by a touch of pear drop and strawberry. The palate is an explosion of crunchy ripe red fruit, backed up by silky tannins giving structure with round mouthfeel and finishing with rich strawberry jam notes. Tasty by itself, but great with cold meats and terrines.
The combination of Serge with his two sons Landry and Samuel makes for an interesting team at Colonge. There is nothing like sons or daughters coming in to spur their father on! They now own 7.5 hectares of Beaujolais, 20 hectares of Villages and 7.3 hectares in Fleurie. The average age of the vines is at least 30 years old with some 100 years old. Vinification is traditional in a mix of cement tanks and stainless steel, all in temperature controlled chais. The wines are rich and gutsy in style, rather like Serge and always give pleasure.
