Already hugely popular in the European market, United Cellars are proud to be the sole importer of this incredibly enjoyable wine that is easy to drink but with enough complexity to keep every drinker happy. This wine is produced from younger vines (about twenty years old). Jean-Paul does not use the common carbonic maceration technique so widely practiced in Beaujolais, nor does he use the commercial yeast 71B which is also widely used. Instead he uses Burgundian methods of destemming and maceration and the fermentation uses only natural yeasts. Very lifted and pretty violet nose, with hints of chalk and minerals. Light chalky body, brilliantly fresh acid, low 12% abv, long violet petal finish. Enjoy within 2 years.

Brilliant value for this young Beaujolais, an "entry tier" wine composed of young vines (still 20+ years) and made through the same low-interventionist philosophy that governs all of legendary Jean-Paul Brun's wines. Rock, roses, wild raspberry, white peppercorn, fresh herbs rush through this lean, charming, light bodied and highly quaffable wine. Tannins are bamboo fine, housing this to a peppery finish. Honest, characterful, authentic; I challenge anyone who says they don't like Gamay to not like this real wine.
