Vin Noé Julie&Nas 2019 which is imported by our friends at Sager +Wine.
Domaine Saint-Cyr Pet Nat, 2020
Raphael does a pre harvest selection from the same vineyard that makes our Keg Beaujolais to make this great naturally sparkling Gamay. Always fresh and vibrant, we have people getting in touch for the next release every year. It's here, don't hang about.
Domaine Saint-Cyr La Galoche, 2020
Galoche is the stream that passes the winery down in Anse, Southern Beaujolais. Here the soils are limestone and clay rather than granitic like up in the northern villages. This wine is vibrant, bright, with wild strawberries and a gentle spiciness owing to the 100% carbonic maceration of the grapes.
Vin Noé Julie&Nas 2019
Jonathan Purcell is making some great wines in his cellar in Auxey-Duresses, we loved this wine when we drank a bottle (of 2018) in the Le Grappin cellar with Andrew a while back. An ideal guest producer for our Beaujolais pack, this is one of the best Beaujolais we have tasted outside of the growers we import in the last couple of years
Chateau Grand Pré Fleurie Vielles Vignes 2016
Romain made fantastic wines in 2016 and this is a great opportunity to enjoy a natural Beaujolais from a classic vintage. There is an earthiness to this wine and it has great density from the old vines on the slop at Grand Pré.
Domaine Thillardon, Chénas 'Vibrations' 2018
Paul-Henri and Charles Thillardon are a new addition to our list. The Thillardon boys grew up in South Beaujolais alongside Raphael Saint-Cyr and share with Domaine Saint-Cyr the Les Blémonts vineyard. Chénas has a reputation for being one of firmer stricter styles but their vinification style produces very elegant, fine and precise styles.
This is the first natural wine cuvee that Paul-Henri made (all are now made this way), it is a blend of different parcels. Including now some from young vines in Chassignol. The best wine from Thillardon to start with before diving into to all the lieu-dit micro cuvees.
Les Bertrand Beaujolais Oh! 2019
This is from Yann's own parcel east of Morgon. The wine is a homage to Jules Chauvet and was originally named Pure Oh!rigine after Chauvet's own wine. But last year the authorities decided that name couldn't be used. This is drinking well straight away, showing the classic Bertrand elegance but with a denseness from the old vines in the blend.
