You like simple, bright, crunchy red wines that can be lightly chilled
We think it's one of the best in Beaujolais and so did the Beaujolais growers association who voted it joint first place best Nouveau 2019!
So much more than your average Nouveau with no confected notes and a pure and simple red fruit character

Beaujolais Nouveau 2019, by Alpine Wines' classic producer Philippe Deschamps from vineyards in Beaujeu and Brouilly.

For the first time in years we have some left after Christmas. This is the best wine to drink all year, and keep for summer barbecues, so grab some while on winter offer.

Tasting Notes

Tasted by Anne McHale MW in May 2020 for an event with 67 Pall Mall, her assessment was as follows: "More concentrated and vibrant than the average Beaujolais Nouveau. No carbonic maceration notes of bubblegum and banana, instead its fresh crunchy red fruit led by raspberries. It's delicious!"

Vintage 2019

from Burgundy Report November 2019 "Medium colour. A modest volume of aroma, but deep and attractively floral too. A fine grain of tannin supports a wine of fresh attack but depth of fruit to balance. A good big mouthful of fine Beaujolais here."

My take: There's quite a bit of violet for us, with juicy red fruit and a nice touch of minerality. Very moreish and easy drinking.

People often ask what makes Philippe's Beaujolais Nouvea so good?

Here are just some of the reasons why!

  • His vines are older and his yields much lower than most Beaujolais producers but still within the permitted limits
  • He works classically with spontaneous yeasts but if the wines are to slow to start fermentation, occasionally he has to add a starter.
  • He’s very precise about temperature control and although a small producer utilises small cooling banners in the fermentation tanks to optimise control.
  • After fermenting the different parcels of Gamay from his sites in Beaujolais, Villages and Brouilly he tastes the fin de presse and if too austere this is left out of the final Beaujolais Nouveau, its not wasted but added to some of his other wines for structure like the Beaujolais Vielles Vignes
