6 wines from Beaujolais.
Two from 2020, the rest from 2019!
Domaine Des Grottes - Petit Coin Du Paradis 2020
Gamay picked early, pressed direct and bottled with a fair amount of residual sugar. The acidity from the early picking of the grapes balances with the sugar to create a delicious fizz quite unlike anything else. Perfect aperitif.
Domaine De La Gapette - Charpenay 2019
A rare bird, the Beaujolais Blanc. Chardonnay pressed direct, then aged in steel to preserve tension and fruit. Exploding with flavour, a beautiful balance of salinity and citrus.
Domaine De La Gapette - Jonchere 2019
From 75 year old vines of Gamay planted on granite soils near brouilly. A delicate, light extraction produces of wine of fine bitterness light aromatics and ethereal texture.
Domaine Des Grottes - Brut De Cuve 2019
Romain bottles all his wines as Nouveau, but for us they are always better with a little time in the bottle to find their feet. In 2019 he made a very delicate Gamay with light fruit that pours the colour of a rose. Drink chilled.
Raphael Beysang & Emelie Hurtubise - Nouveau Litre 2020
This is a wonderful Nouveau in Litre format, the grapes are on granite soils and given a two week maceration whole bunch before a short elevage. Bottled unfiltered with no fining or filtering it is a wine brimming with energy.
