    Domaine Laurent Martray, France
    Laurent Martray has been a winemaker based in Odenas since 1987. His vines are located on the hillside of Combiaty facing east and south-east, from which come the "Vieilles Vignes" and "Corentin" cuvées. More recently Martray has been using a plot of vines located on the famous Brouilly hill, also in Odenas, which is the "Les Feuillées" wine in the Côte de Brouilly appellation. The Côte de Brouilly vines are located on the hill of Brouilly overlooking the village of Odenas. The wine comes from very old vines planted in 1916 on a little more than one hectare. The soil is composed of porphyry and diorite rocks with blue volcanic granite. It isn't possible to use mechanization here because the terrain is steep and very stony. The Brouilly vines include one hectare in the town of Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne and eight hectares in the municipality of Odenas. The soil is granitic rock, sand and silt on the surface. The work in the vineyard is carried out entirely by hand with the lowest possible levels of mechanization in the winery. Vine production is controlled by pruning, and also thinning if needed. The harvest is entirely manual. The vatting period is 8 to 10 days and ageing is in oak barrels or casks. Bottling is carried out without any filtering.

    The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

    Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot Noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

    Four styles of Beaujolais wines exist. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the Beaujolais wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Aside from the wines simply labelled, Beaujolais, there are the Beaujolais-Villages wines, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, and offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior sections are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

    Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
