Beaujolais Cru, 2011
70 year old Gamay vines planted over a vein of amethyst, "every year, this terroir expresses itself with honey notes." The winemaker boasts that the art of making wine in his family dates back to the days of the French Revolution. (A lot of land then was "redistributed" from monasteries to communes, so his family was in good company). Released Jan 4 2014 and new to Vintages.
Love the busy bee on the label, a little grace note. Love the taste even more. Lingering finish. Waiting til the weekend to pour a glass of wine really helps me appreciate it all the more.
Before I started sipping this I was dipping shaved parmesan into aged balsamic. Decadent.
