This château is a magnificent edifice, now sadly in disrepair, high up in the northern hills near Juliénas. The cool spot makes an intense, deeply coloured, refreshing style of Beaujolais that can outshine many a cru.
From Quincié, considered one of the finest of the Beaujolais villages, this has a bouquet of crushed raspberries, a burst of ripe fruit on the palate and a bright clean finish. The fruit for the 2020 was souced mainly from the Le Souzy vineyard, with additional grapes from the Bataillon vineyard - both excellent plots.
A 2021 Wine Champion. As buyer Matthew Horsley put it, ‘the standard of Beaujolais this year was amazing’, and this exciting taste of the 2020 vintage showed why it’s a great opportunity to get acquainted or reacquainted with the wines. After two fuller-bodied vintages, the freshness of this well-balanced, cherry-fruited favourite certainly perked up the tastebuds.
A 2021 Wine Champion,. ‘Just perfect Fleurie: lovely.’ Joanna Locke MW said what we were all thinking when tasting this! The 2019 was a winner last year, but the 2020 is even better, showing this Beaujolais vintage’s hallmark freshness alongside floral perfume and ripe red fruit. A treat.
From a high-altitude vineyard, this tastes more like a Côte de Brouilly with its refreshing, brambly fruit character and silky texture. Attractive, well-priced Beaujolais from an excellent vintage.
Côte de Brouilly is a hill in Beaujolais with vineyards at all points of the compass so it can produce wines of different levels of ripeness. This is a blend that captures both the ripeness of the 2020 vintage and the pure sweet fruit of this cru. Produced for us by Les Vins Aujoux, this showcases dark cherry, blackberry and spice flavours with a full, concentrated palate and supple tannin.
