Domaine des Grandes Bruyères, Beaujolais-Villages Rouge "Prestige" Vieilles Vignes ~ Fût de Chêne, Beaujolais, France 2017
{sustainable} 100% Gamay (80+ year old vines)

CHERRY & RASPBERRY, FENNEL, LUSH, GRIPPY TANNINS
This varietal most likely arrived to the village of the same name, in Beaujolais, from Germany in the mid-1300’s. Perhaps best known here in the form of Beaujolais Nouveau, the bright, fruity, young version, this is on the other end of the Gamay spectrum. Made from very old vines and aged in oak, with loads of spice and a hint of cedar, it still retains the grape’s fantastic food-friendliness.
Serving Suggestion: Cranberry orange roasted chicken. Curried sweet potatoes & lentils. Soy-glazed salmon. Olive tapenade on crostini.
