Cru BEAJOLAIS - This is not your Grandma's sweet wine, and this isn't the piffy juice we get in November that we all hate-to-love, and love-to-hate, this is cru Beaujolais and we can't get enough of it. On the heels of two successful back to back vintages for Beaujolais, 2011 is topping the charts as a hallmark vintage for cru Beaujolais.
"Wine lovers who discard their preconceptions and prejudices about Beaujolais and support this region's most imaginative, intrepid, and intègre vintners will not only be richly rewarded at their dinner tables and in their cellars …" WA Issue #207
Beaujolais is undergoing a stylistic rebirth from the vineyards, to the cellars and within the marketplace. A new generation of winemakers sit at the helm of these historic properties and they are raising the bar and standards for wine production: low yields; clean vineyard practices; and working with savvy negociants to propel Beaujolais back into the market – but here's the catch in miniscule quantities.
Zachys has secured 4 stunning values that we're convinced will change any pre-conceived notions you might have with Beaujolais.
These selections are available in extremely limited quantities and our shipment is arriving next week so don't wait around to secure your bottles, I can't guarantee any of our allocation will hit the sales floor.
All my best,
