Beaujolais is beginning to have a resurgence with more producers making better quality wines. While more focus is on the ‘Cru’ wines, those with a named village such as ‘Morgon’, ‘Fleurie’, ‘Moulin-a-Vent’, ‘Chenas’ etc on the label, this Beaujolais Villages level wine is a good quaffer.
In typical Beaujolais style, there lots to love in the plum and cherry fruit with some nutmeg spice and earth. It has a crisp, linear length that flows along the palate with lighter tannins. You certainly can enjoy this wine chilled down at a BBQ or summer party. It is rather moreish.
