Notes from the Winemaker:
This quite atypical Beaujolais Nouveau made using grapes from old vines, is the expression of the Gamay grape at its purest. A very ‘winy’ cuvée, which is all grape and never chaptilised. Dark robe, structured and fleshy on the palate with very ripe black and red berry flavours. This is a top of the range cuvée with character. It is sure to reconcile anybody with Beaujolais Nouveau who’s been disappointed in the past. The complexity of the mouthfeel makes this a true wine that can improve over the winter and be enjoyed right through the summer.

Personality of the cuvée:
This was the first ever cuvée of non-chaptalised Beaujolais Nouveau made using grapes from old vines. The original was in 1988, elaborated in collaboration with Les Caves Legrand in Paris. Since then it has been much emulated. Pierre-Marie, side by side with some highly qualified tasters, carries out the assembly of a selection of cuvées made using grapes from old vines that are concentrated while remaining sufficiently open for the fruit to express itself to the full on ‘D’ day. A job requiring great skill!

Tasting Notes:
Robe - intense ruby.
Nose - Powerful and concentrated. Aromas of violets, blackberries and caramel and roasted chocolate.
Palate - Opulent and well structured, this area is rich in tannins chiseled lace. Good tone floral aromas. The acidity is well integrated. The wine has a hint of minerality that makes your mouth water. The finish is lingering and fresh notes of liquorice and pepper.
