VIGNERONS DES CRUS DU BEAUJOLAIS / Beaujolais, France

1439

Founded in 1929, Vignerons des Crus du Beaujolais is a well respected collective of growers.   Ethos here is in sustainable vineyard management, with some excellent old-vine resources rendering some cut-above Beaujolais at all levels.  Stylistically, the wines well balance Gamay’s pretty florals and juiciness, against the more more serious and structured personalities of some Beaujolais.

    Bright and fun Beauj with lots of redberries and raspberries, lively with nice length, pretty florals, and just enough of a firm tannic hand to give interest without taking away from fun drinkability.

  • Vignerons des Crus du Beaujolais Morgon 2021

    $ 45.00 incl. GST

    From vines of over 49 years of age, the Morgon contrasts to the producer’s other cuvees, grown on schist rather than granite soils.  The wine sees semi-carbonic maceration of 10-12 days and is raised entirely in stainless steel.

    Intense purple in colour, plenty of Morgon muscle here – black fruits, allspice and the tiniest hint of liquorice.  Great length and a decent column of mid-palate tannin making this a great match for stews, game bird and traditional hearty French cuisine.
