This Beaujolais-Villages displays a shiny garnet color, and is superbly fruity, with aromas of red and black berries, with hints of cherry marmalade. Structured and generous mouthfeel with unctuous texture with silky tannins. Balanced.
Beaujolais-Villages takes its name from a number of wine-producing villages long identified for the superior quality of their wines. In this instance, “superior” refers to greater complexity in bouquet, higher concentration, and deeper flavor. Its distinctive character sets a middle ground for Beaujolais, with its unique casual charm and the prestigious Top Ten Cru Wines to the north. If one could compare a glass of joyful Beaujolais to Mozart’s Cherubino, then Beaujolais- Villages would be Figaro-more mature, worldly and self assured. Beaujolais-Villages is that ideal, multipurpose red wine we all look for in a wine.
