Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais-Villages 2012

Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais-Villages 750ML 2012    
Sku: 52052

The Beaujolais area, although part of greater Burgundy, is very distinct on many accounts. The villages have a different look : instead of slate, the houses have roofs made of red tiles reminiscent of Provence and the Mediterranean world. The soil, too, is pink granite (and not limestone as in Côte-d`Or). This is where the Gamay grape is king. The type of pruning used in Beaujolais is called "gobelet" : no wires between the vines ; each plant grows by itself, independently from the others. Maison Joseph DROUHIN has always been deeply involved with the Beaujolais region and was indeed a pioneer when, in the early fifties, they were the first to bottle and ship Beaujolais Nouveau. As for Beaujolais Villages, it is a careful selection of various "terroirs" and micro-climates, all contributing to make this wine synonymous with charm and conviviality. It has a bright purple colour, a very intense nose, reminiscent of violets, peonies and red berries. On the palate, it has a silky smoothness, and its delicious fruit lingers for a long time. Beaujolais Villages is very versatile with all kinds of food, especially simple and flavourful dishes such as hors-d`oeuvre, charcuterie and white meats.

Food pairing
This wine goes well with white meats, charcuterie, and overall "bistro" type dishes.
