Ripe morello cherry and black stone fruits fill the nose, enhanced by some hints of delicate spice. A rich mouth with silky tannins, it is expressive and lingering.

2019 was a ‘mixed bag’ vintage with an overall loss of 25% in Beaujolais against full crop volumes. Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages and Moulin à Vent suffered from widespread frost in April. This was followed by bad flowering due to June’s record temperature variation from 3 to 42°C. On 18th of August southern Beaujolais was hit by a hail storm, causing up to 50% loss of crop – Beaujolais-Villages/ Coteaux Bourguignonnes appellations were affected the most. August was also wet, but dry and fresh conditions in September allowed the grapes to slowly ripen. Harvest began on 9th September.
Traditional Burgundian vinification takes place with destemmed grapes and maturation on fine lees.
