Made by our friend Antoine Vincent, owner of Chateau Fuisse, this lovely cru Beaujolais is produced from the Domaine de la Conseillere in Julienas. The Vincent family has owned the estate since 2009, adding to their respected holdings in Pouilly Fuisse. The domaine is set on 7 hillside acres in the heart of Julienas. Vineyards sit with southern exposures and well draining soils of granite, sand and clay.  For the vinification, 100% Gamay grapes are hand-picked and very lightly crushed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation occurs for a period of about 10 days with daily punching down of the cap to extract additional color, flavor and complexity. Following fermentation, the free run juice is separated and the grapes are pressed, the wine is then reblended. Malolactic fermentation and aging occur in 100% stainless steel.

Wine SpectatorA stylish, light-bodied red, with ripe strawberry and blackberry notes mixed with violet and ground spice flavors. Fresh acidity and light tannins linger on the bergamot- and peach-infused finish. Drink now through 2018. 100 cases imported.
