Easily recognizable for its beautiful purple colour and typical aromas of violet and musk. Ample and round on the palate. Long aftertaste, with intense fruit.
In the Beaujolais area, 2022 yields are below the average of the last five years, but the crop is of very good quality. There are similarities with the great vintages of 2009, 2015, 2018 and 2020. The wines are balanced, fleshy and powerful.
A very good vintage.
