Les Pivoines, Beaujolais Villages 2019
Gamay vines grown on the slopes of the rolling Beaujolais hills. Whole bunch Gamay is fermented using traditional carbonic maceration techniques. A short cuvaison is used in order to keep the up-front, juicy, fruit characters.
Exhuberant fruity red wine with juicy crushed strawberries, cherry characters and an intriguing savoury twist. The palate is soft and approachable with vibrant acidity and a mouthwatering floral, morello cherry finish.
Try with a charcuterie platter, BBQ sausages or even with a hearty salad (salade Beaujolaise = poached egg and fried bacon strips on green salad ...and don't forget the garlic!). Excellent wine for a summer picnic or alfresco dining.
