Domaine de Bel Air Beaujolais Villages 2016 - 1.5 Litre Bottle

Product description

At Domaine de Bel-Air, from harvest to the bottling, the process is gentle and simple. All the grapes are harvested by hand with a first selection made in the vineyard. Any damaged or unripe grapes are discarded and the remainder are taken to the winery. The grapes are then sorted a second time on a sorting table to further eliminate damaged berries and grapes that are not ripe enough. Finally, these select grapes are put into an open vat to undergo alcoholic fermentation.

When the process is finished, the remaining grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and the wine is matured in a stainless steel vat for seven months before bottling.

The Beaujolais-Villages 'Granits Bleus' draws out delicious flavours of raspberries, blackcurrant, black tea and violet on the nose, with a generous, savoury fruit-driven mouthfeel and delicious chalky tannins. It pairs well with charcuterie, quiche or is perfect by itself as an aperitif. This wine is ready to drink now or can be cellared up until 2024. 100% Gamay.
