Tasting Our Two New Beaujolais Crus

Friday in the tasting room and our new Beaujolais Cru wines from Château de Grand Pré are two of a dozen or so bottles opened, and they are right up there with the best.

The Fleurie is light in colour but delivers where it matters; all raspberry and summer fruits with soft tannins and a smooth finish. The Morgon, meanwhile, is fuller in colour and taste with hints of white pepper and a great acid backbone complimenting the black cherry characters perfectly.

Great Beaujolais does exist, and we can’t get enough of it.
