Lantignié belongs to one of the three official Beaujolais-Villages areas. It is a small village next to Beaujeu and close to Villié-Morgon.
The best vineyards are located on steep hills with a nice exposure to the sun.
The vineyards of Lantignie are planted on a granitic soil including also some clay.
The Gamay Noir grape is the only grape allowed to produce the red Lantignié.
Full grapes are fermented during 12 to 15 days. Aging takes place on fine lies both in conrete and stanless steel vats.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
The lantignié is full of breed. It may match cold dishes as well as grilled meat of typical Beaujolais charcuterie.
This wine is very pleasant when drunk young but can easily be aged 3 years and more.
