More about this wine

I am a big fan of Beaujolais Cru.

A clear, quite deep ruby Gamay, this does not disappoint at any level.

A more refined nose than many Beaujolais Cru, there are mixtures of red and black fruits, raspberry and blackcurrant mostly, with some spiciness.

Ben says (of the 2007): On the palate, there is a depth of complexity that is unique. A brambly green flavour combines with the raspberries and red and black cherries. Underneath there is a strong tannic quality almost as if you are tasting the stems of the grapes themselves. That might sound disturbing but it is remarkably good.

Absolutely superb wine, perfect with game and of course French cheeses.
