Description

Aromatically divine. This is an exceptionally good Beaujolais. It’s like a berry compote with hints of rose petal, pepper and a touch of wet leaves. The perfume follows through on the palate with a lovely juicy mouthfeel and crunchy acid.

Beaujolais – Most famous for aromatic, light of body, high acid reds that are made from the Gamay variety. There is a Burgundian sensibility on Rhone soil types which makes for an interesting style. The quality wines are refreshingly tart with aromatic complexity and enough fruit weight to balance out the tartness. They can age but often it is not required. The best wines are found in the 10 Crus of the region with the less appellations being akin to an ocean in more ways than one.  Whites from Chardonnay are available but hard to find.

Gamay – Grown in the French regions of Beaujolais and Loire Valley. It is early budding, high cropping, aromatic and high acid. It was outlawed from Burgundy by Duke Philippe the Bold for being disloyal but has no doubt made up for that with honourable service. The best wines from Gamay can be Burgundian in flavour and well worth seeking out. Often they are exceptionally good value too.
