Patrick Tranchand has managed the domain Haut-Poncié since 1994, left to him by his father. This land has been in the family heritage since 1960. Patrick’s passion is to accentuate and express the unique terroir of this region.
The vineyard is located in the climat of Poncié in Fleurie. The plot stretches over 2.5 acres of land, with about 3,200 vines per acre, on average at 65 years old. The soil is composed of sand and granite, sitting at 320m in elevation with a south-east exposure.
This wine goes through a 12 day whole cluster maceration. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for 8 months in both concrete and stainless steel tanks.
The wine presents a red garnet robe with raspberry red highlights. The nose has a nice bouquet of fresh iris flowers and dark fruits. The palate is ample, silky and very long.
Pairs harmoniously with game or meat cooked in saucy dishes, pork tenderloin, beef steak or cheeses.
