Couly-Dutheil La Coulée Automnale
100% CABERNET FRANC
After the Gravières, we decided to tame other harmonies, charm, wisdom and roundness. Our Autumn wine was born and wears the pretty name of Coulée Automnale!
Ruby color, fresh and pleasant nose with a small dominance of black fruits. A fruity, full, and ripe mouth, with silky tannins. Serve between 14 and 16 degrees C, pleasant in its youth.
A wine of pleasure that will accompany perfectly poultry, grilled meat, cod meat, stuffed pig’s feet, calf’s liver pan-fried in vinegar, cod with spices, a plate of charcuterie, or goat’s cheese.
Alluvial terraces of sand and gravel, brought by the Vienne (Tributary of the Loire). Our region enjoys a temperate climate of semi-oceanic type favorable to the cultivation of the vine.
Sustainable culture, respectful of the environment with grass between the rows in order to promote the limitation of yields and erosion. Thinning, trellising, and harvesting in green to optimize the maturity and quality of the grapes.
After a destemming and an integral sorting of the harvest, the fermentation musts start spontaneously thanks to indigenous yearts. The vatting lasts 10 to 15 days under constant control vinification temperatures. This method promotes the fruity expression of the Cabernet Franc. The bottling takes place in the Autumn.
