"Utterly lip smacking. This delightfully splits the difference between the lighter examples of Beaujolais-Villages and the more serious Crus wines. Firm and mineral-scented, this has succulent fully ripe Gamay fruit that spreads convincingly right across the palate. Makes you want to sing." J.Robinson
Grape Varietal: Gamay Region: Beaujolais-Villages Vintage: 2011
This is a superb example of the Gamay (au jus noire) grape, the only permitted variety for the red wines of Beaujolais. The nine hectare Chateau Grandmont is situated in the commune of Blacé, is renowned for its concentrated and complex Beaujolais-Villages.
This wine has a bouquet of red currants with a hint of spice coupled with a beautifully fresh fruitiness and long, lingering finish. A fabulous example of Beaujolais-Villages.
Serving Suggestions: Serve it a slightly chilled at 15°c. Try it with roast lamb, country terrines or chicken casseroles.
