Originating from the lieu-dit ‘Poncié’ in the appellation Fleurie. This vineyard is situated on a pink granite base, at an altitude of 260 metres, and faces south-east. The vines are 45 years old. The grapes are hand-picked and selected in the vineyard. Anita Kuhnel used to be a professional cyclist. Nowadays she puts all her energy into making Beaujolais wines with the same drive. Anita only uses terroirs of high quality. She makes wines from the Gamay grape that have already received several high scores from renowned critics, including Robert Parker and Wine Enthusiast. The winery is located in the heart of wines, in terroirs known for the quality of their soils. That is why I chose plot growing, with each bottle reflecting the character of each plot. I call it “letting the plots do the talking”. Each is distinguished by soil richness, geology, planting apparatus (young or old vines), exposure, yield, grape size, seeds and skin thickness.
