Silky, fresh red fruits – cherry and strawberry - freshness
Juicy strawberry, cherry, violets and a touch of spice
With rolling hills and vineyards as high as 500 metres, Beaujolais is one of the prettiest of France’s wine regions. It lies on the southern tip of Burgundy, but king grape here is Gamay, not Pinot Noir. Its supple, fruity wines are well worth seeking out. This charming wine is from Les Vignerons des Pierres Dorées, a cellar which lies in the prized subregion of golden stones (Pierres Dorées), from which it takes its name. On the well drained, stony soils of the area, Gamay achieves juicy ripeness while maintaining its natural, lively acidity. From an atypical, but high quality vintage, this 2020 has bright berry fruit and incomparable quaffability. Great served cool on its own, with charcuterie or with rustic pâté and crusty bread.
"Beaujolais wines are so full of charm and bright berry fruit, and 2020 is proving a winner"
Sarah Everden Buyer for Beaujolais
