Les Pivoines Beaujolais Villages
In the Winery
Gamay vines grown on the slopes of the rolling Beaujolais hills. Just picture that for a second…
…and we’re back
Whole bunch Gamay is fermented using traditional carbonic maceration techniques for this Beaujolais Villages. Short cuvaison is used in order to keep the upfront 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.
What does it go with?
Try with a charcuterie platter, (bien sur?) BBQ sausages or even with a hearty salad (‘salads 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 but equally good on those cold nights with some cured meats and cheese.
