Beaujolais Nouveau

72 GBP
As already announced end of June, 2017 is a great vintage for the red wines and a good vintage for white wines.
Even though the Beaujolais region has encountered ups and downs in terms of yield over the past few years; it has produced wonderful and amazing vintages:
2009 – a legendary vintage
2011 – a charming vintage, matching quantity and great quality
2015 – THE vintage of the century
2017 – a wonderful vintage

It is a small harvest with a low yield (even without the vineyards touched by the hailstorms) but the quality is excellent. The number of bunches per vine is quite high, around 13 instead of 9 -10 on average. The bunches are yet short with small berries and thick skins, explaining this low yield
The first juices are great : nice maturity with a perfect balance on acidity, an intense colour and various aromas, depending on the different « terroirs ».
It is a wonderful vintage !
