  • From a benchmark Beaujolais producer
  • 2018 was a classic vintage for the estate
  • A reference point for traditional Beaujolais

From the southernmost Cru of Beaujolais and Beaujolais’ oldest vineyard. Organically-grown, old vine Gamay vines are situated on the Mont Brouilly slopes. The vines yields are modest but intense fruit as a result. When it comes to vinification, the wines are whole bunch fermented under their own weight and transferred to old barrels to mature for 6-12 months.

Gary Walsh

“Rich, fleshy and succulent wine with a heap of exotic spice, blueberry and blackberry pie, and violet perfume. It’s ripe and juicy, almost sweet, but has ripe silty tannin and and a stony feel to go with that, and fine acidity through its core. Finish is full of fruit, pastry crust, and a whole lot more of that spice. Kind of exuberant now, but should come up very nicely with some bottle age.” – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
