I spent the better half of two weeks exclusively drinking Beaujolais. This wine took my journey to a stop. Jean-Claude and Geneviève Chanudet put many more famous producers to shame with this beautiful, highly affordable wine. From 50-year-old vines located between Morgon and Brouilly. Tastes like caramel-covered Granny Smith apples, pomegranate, and red cherries with subtle hints of baking spices.
From 50 year old vines all hand-harvested in October. Carbonic maceration occurs with natural yeasts in enamel tank (separate parcels). Some pumping over might be used to stimulate activity. All wine moved to foudre to rest on lees. Bottled with little to no SO2.
