If this charmingly named Cru could speak of its cradle, treat it would do so mischievously yet fondly.
This, the most northern of the Beaujolais Crus, is born of a vineyard that is almost exclusively in the Saône et Loire Department.
A refined and balanced wine that retains all the fruitiness of the Gamay grape and gleams with a ruby robe backed up with kirsch, spice and mignonette aromas and flavours.
Focal point: a tender, harmonious body.
It’s really not surprising that its following is growing.
