France - Beaujolais

The climate here is ideally suited to the early budding and ripening Gamay grape, which gives fragrant wines with aromas of raspberry and cherry.

Around half the region's wine production is sold as Beaujolais Nouveau.

ABV 12.0%

Fleurie

Domaine de la Bouronière
Fleurie, Beaujolais, France

Gamay 100%

A beautiful, medium deep robe that is perfectly shiny with bluish tints and a colour veering towards carmine. This wine is characterised by its complex nose with some lovely red fruit aromas but above all, very floral nuances, including violet and iris, a hint of cut flowers round off the bouquet. On the palate, finesse and balance are the key words. The attack is supple, silky and harmonious with a touch of raspberry. As the wine evolves it melts in the mouth, its tannins are pleasant leaving an impression of dried flowers and elegance.

ABV 12.5%

Morgan Côte-du-Py Vielles-Vignes

Domaine Pierre Savoye
Côte-du-Py, Beaujolais, Burgundy

Gamay 100%

The flavours of this wine are as a result of the broken up schist’s in the soil. To describe this condition Morgon deserves its own specific expression and thus the term 'il morgonne' has been adopted. It is a full-bodied and virile wine, dominated by touches of cherry, kirsch and at times apricot. It is also suited for ageing.
