2011 Beaujolais Nouveau

The 2011 Beaujolais Nouveau vinification took place in a promising way.
The grapes were ripe, healthy, and thick-skinned.
We are very pleased with the wines we are tasting now which remind us of 2009.
The colours are intense, with deep-red cherry tints and aromas reminiscent of raspberry mingling delicately with bilberry and blackberry.
Supple on the palate, with rounded tanins, they are extremely pleasant.
We will give you our further impressions just before the bottling takes place.
