- Red Beaujolais
The Beaujolais rivals Alsace for the most beautiful region in France and its wines deserve much wider acclaim. The Gamay variety combines with the granite soil and maceration carbonique fermentation process to produce wines of tremendous quality with each of the “Cru” villages having a different character. Our Beaujolais Villages from Domaine Gy-Sablon offers great value and our St Amour from Domaine des Pins and Domaine de the Portes du Paradis are heavenly. The Fleurie from Domaine Andre Cologne is full of raspberry fruit and Brouilly of Domaine des Tour and Domaine Les Roches Bleues are supple and silky. Laurent Guillet at Domaine de la Chaponne is a rising star of Morgon and the Moulin a Vent of Jacky Janodet and Jerome Janodet repay cellaring with nuances of Burgundian Pinot Noir.
This Beaujolais Villages from Domaine Andre Colonge et Fils is light, fresh and classic. Supple and well-balanced, it has a nose of blackcurrant bud and fresh grapes with crunchy red fruit flavours on the palate.
Located near Morgon and Fleurie, Chiroubles is home to bright and lively young wines such as this La Forge from Domaine de la Chaponne. Fragrant aromas of fresh summer berries are balanced with soft red fruit flavours and smooth tannins.
Serge Cologne has an exceptional 7.3ha site in Fleurie and has been joined by sons Samuel and Landry. A star of the Beaujolais, these wines drip with sappy, raspberry fruit.
Between Macon and Lyon, in the heart of the Beaujolais vineyards and at the foot of Mount Brouilly we find this beautifully renovated, magnificent building, located in an exceptional setting in the middle of the vines. Brouilly is very pleasing when young but also drinks well after a few years cellaring.
