Overview

Have you noticed it yet? There is a renaissance going on in Beaujolais. It’s a backlash to all the insanity of the Beaujolais Nouveau years. Seriously, what other wine region promotes itself with its basest product? Well, Beaujolais does; and it’s still flogging it. But there is light on the horizon, and a new generation is fighting back. We bring you three bijou wines from three of the brightest stars in this new constellation of Beaujolais winemakers. These are hand-made Beaujolais crus from producers whose names you should note. World class wine for a song!

This Beaujolais Mixed Red Case includes 4 bottles of each PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED:

Richard Rottiers Beaujolais Cru Moulin à Vent 2019
Richard Rottiers has winemaking in his blood. His prime vines in Moulin-a-Vent yields in Moulin-a-Vent are always naturally low, making this the most powerful, concentrated and long-lived of the Beaujolais cru. Here we have pure gamay fruits, black and mineral, with the distictive Moulin-a-Vent lingering violets, Six months in ‘foudre’ (large oak barrels) give the wine structure, finesse and fullness.

Paul-Henri Thillardon Chenas 2019
Paul-Henri Thillardon is, at a very young age, a masterful winemaker. It's got to be a gift, he has touch and perfect pitch, and his wines sing. Chenas is not far from Moulin-a-Vent, and for that can show much of the same muscle. Paul-Henri brings you this concentration, but knows where the balance point is for elegance. We call this 'grown-up wine'.

Richard Rottiers Beaujolais Villages 2018
Classic Beaujolais village, fruity and spicy...from 60 year old vines.  Great depth and body.  This is what the Beaujolais renaissance is all about!
