Tasting Notes

A lovely example of a generously flavoured Gamay showing intense aromas of red and black berried fruits, with cherry notes. Beautifully balanced with fine tannins and a soft, rounded finish.

Producer details

With over 42 years experience, Olivier Ravier is one of the most iconic and respected winemakers in Beaujolais. He is a former President of the Beaujolais growers association and has been appointed as an expert at the National Institute of the French wines appellation by the French government. His in-depth knowledge of the region, its climate, and the Gamay variety, is second-to-none. Living in the heart of the Fleurie appellation, he produces wines which overflow with typicity from the Beaujolais terroir.

In the vineyard

2016 saw unpredictable weather in the spring, followed by excellent weather during the summer months. An Indian summer during the weeks preceding the harvest, resulted in ideal ripening conditions. The vineyard benefited from warm, sunny days combined with cool nights, allowing the grapes to reach good maturity while maintaining a pleasant freshness.

In the winery

This Beaujolais Villages was vinified in the traditional way, with a semi-carbonic maceration lasting for six to eight days. The fermentation was temperature controlled throughout and following the fermentation, it underwent a malolactic fermentation,resulting in a softer style of wine.

Food Recommendations

A wonderful accompaniment to prosciutto, light pasta dishes, pulled pork sliders and soft cheeses.
