A classic and great value Beaujolais-Villages that reminds us just how delicious Gamay Noir can be. This is seriously drinkable with juicy bright fruits and more depth and structure than is often associated with Beaujolais at this level.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from the 38 wine-making villages in the Beaujolais production area. This delicious red wine marks a sort of transition between "plain" Beaujolais with a spontaneous character and the ten prestigious "crus" further north. More than any other, it is a wine that is enjoyed in happy homes.
Vibrant red fruits, such as strawberries and currants, on the palate and an intense perfume, make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie and traditional holiday fare."
Wine Enthusiast (2019 Vintage)
"This structured wine shows a grip of tannins and bright acidity balanced by plenty of succulent red fruits and a hint of smoke. It could age a few months but is quite delicious now."
91/100 James Suckling (2019 Vintage)
"A delicious, juicy Beaujolais with sliced dried-strawberry and blackberry character. Hints of walnuts. Medium body. Light, fine tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now."

"The appellation of Beaujolais-Villages signifies a wine made from grapes grown in the 38 wine-making villages of the Beaujolais production area. The slightly elevated area connects the flat Beaujolais plain with the charming rolling hillsides of the ten famed crus that grow to the north. At its best, BV is a fruity red wine emphasis on the red fruit that is uncomplicated but stylish with a savoury, mouth-watering style that will make you want to sip glass after glass. It’s the perfect foil to grilled chicken or a fresh piece of cheese. In the case of this 2018, the fruit is slightly darker, but the acidity is healthy, A juicy affair that finishes dry. Fine value."
Decanter.com, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"The most recognisable Beaujolais-Villages out there is a dependable gateway into the appellation's style – it has a light, floral, creamy nose with a palate that's got some texture and a decent weight of mostly red fruit, joined by some simple blackberry and peppery spice notes. Medium length on the finish."

"Gained our universal support. Pritzker spoke first, "Opens with bright dark cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, juicy and supple with excellent intensity and concentration leading to a long flavourful finish. Lovely balance." I thought it had the depth and structure of a good Cru wine with good weight, sweet fruit and firm, balanced tannins, thanks to both the 2015 vintage and the producer's skill."
