The most serious of our Beaujolais wines, a light but very present structure with a beautiful material provided by the breeding. The ripe fruit is joined by a lot of freshness and a few peppery notes. Charming and elegant.
He's the boss's favorite, my father pampers him and makes only 1,000 bottles. It is aged in barrels of one to three wines in our cellar under the house. A little larger (400L) than the classic Burgundian, they allow to better integrate the wood into the wine.
It has more trunk and structure than the Fleurie. He's the man of the house. It will take at least 4 years before it is drunk.
Perfect on a roast, a leg of lamb, or duck. Like all Beaujolais, he also likes white meat and pork.
