A textbook blue stone Brouilly-style Beaujolais-Villages from one of the great women winemakers in France. Beautiful purity of Gamay Noir fruit – meets cement aging – showcasing the unique expression of Beaujolais that cannot be reproduced
anywhere – but here! Elegant, soft, but still vibrant and juicy ripe red fruit dissolves across your cheeks. Pure and complex bouquet of sweet dark berries, cassis, a bit of smoked meats, and cranberry. Lovely base of granitic soil tones, cumin and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a lovely core of black fruit, excellent soil signature and grip, a fair bit of ripe tannin and a long, structured and complex finish.

Pairing: Beaujolais' fruitiness matches well with sweet and savory flavours, but especially with white meats like chicken and turkey. Roast chicken, chicken tagine with apricots and olives, pork sausages, duck with plum sauce, hangar steak, grilled
steak, meat loaf, as well as fatty fish, like salmon and tuna, especially the Beaujolais Cru style. With its high acidity, this wine can also balance creamy pasta dishes and risottos with fish or shellfish. If choosing a cheese to enjoy with Beaujolais choose soft and semi-soft cheeses. Comté, Brie, Swiss Cheese, Camembert and Feta are some of the cheeses which go well with youthful, fruit-forward Beaujolais.
