Vieilles Vignes “Les Devants”
Explosively aromatic with an underlying structure that could easily be mistaken for Pinot. The old vine fruit and traditional fermentation make a serious Gamay that is seriously delicious. Red fruit, spice and some leather both on the nose and palate. Good with roasts and other meaty dishes.

The 10 ha farm created by Claude Seigneuret in the 1920s is located in the villages of Bussières and Serrières. The vineyard, careful and rigorous work while respecting terroirs. The purest wine; no gluing, no yeasting, simple and sweet plot vinifications. As a continuation of our work philosophy we have been converting Organic Agriculture for 2 years.
All our white wines are produced with indigenous yeasts and bacteria, with sometimes long fermentations. Malolactic fermentations are systematic except in exceptional cases (heat wave, absence of malic acid). The general research in white wines focuses on drinkability and fruit without losing wealth and complexity on the palate.
The estate's red wines are all produced from gamay on different soils and exposures. The work on yeasts is the same as for whites, with one notable difference: the whole maceration and extraction phase and until the end of malo-lactic fermentation is carried out without suffering. The goal is twofold: to reach very low totals since sulphiting occurs after malolactic and rapid microbial stabilization since fermentations follow each other without dead time. Research on red wines focuses on digestibility, moderating extraction, correct acidity and low sulfur totals.
