A serious Beaujolais-Villages from a very well-sited estate close to Juliénas, in the north of the Beaujolais region. After the lighter 2021 vintage, the 2022 delivers more depth of flavour with bags of ripe, fresh, crunchy red fruit, and a long finish.

Chateau D'Emeringes

Located in the villages, Château d’Emeringes borders Chénas and Fleurie, and is just north of Juliénas. Vines have been grown here since the fourteenth century, but Château d’Emeringes was formed in the mid-20th century and has been in the same family for three generations.

The family vineyards are all on optimum Beaujolais-Villages sites, with sandy granitic soils and south-east-facing slopes. The family grows 15 acres of gamay, with vines at least 40 years old, as well as small amounts of 30-year-old chardonnay vines to make white Beaujolais. The age of the vines, combined with careful vineyard management such as the restricted use of pesticides, ensures they produce grapes of the best possible quality.

In the winery, headed by Pierre David, production is very much in line with traditional Beaujolais practices such as semi-carbonic maceration. Their wines are in a classic Beaujolais style, with wonderful full body and an ageing potential that puts them more on a par with cru Beaujolais.

Very well priced, old-vine Beaujolais from vineyards close to Juliénas. You'll find lovely juicy and fleshy black cherry flavours here, but also good grip and freshness.Lovely purity, and excellent value. ...
