Shake it before drinking!
The nose is very a typical Beaujolais made in a natural way. Cherries, strawberries and cranberries on one hand, on the other sweet spicy notes coming from the short barrel ageing. There is some funkiness to it that makes it extremely exciting.
The taste is light and juicy, sour, round and very smooth. There is a hint of petillance that adds to the freshness of the wine. Drink it chilled during the summer and you won't be disappointed!
This fine example of Beaujolais is made from 50-years old vines on broken-down granitic soil. Harvested by hand and placed in concrete vats as whole clusters with around 5% foot crushed to release some juice. Kept under CO2 cover to protect against oxidation, since no SO2 was used on the grapes, as well to encourage intra berry carbonic fermentation. Pressed after 8 days on skins the wine finished its alcoholic fermentation by natural yeasts in old Pinot Noir barrels and aged on lies for 5 months unsulphured. The wine is unfined and unfiltered. Some spritz was left in the wine to protect it, so a decant or a shake is encouraged! Glou-glou!
