LIGHT / BRIGHT REDS

Light and medium reds - 2015 BEAUJOLAIS VIEILLES VIGNES, Domaine de la Rocaillère

2016 BEAUJOLAIS VIEILLES VIGNES, Domaine de la Rocaillère

Bin: 2405
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Beaujolais is to the south of Burgundy. A 'Villages' wine is one step up from a normal Beaujolais but not considered as good as a wine from a named village like Fleurie. BUT remember that a good grower's Villages is often better than a poor Fleurie.....
Producer: The 20 hectare estate is based in Pommiers and run by Vincent Fontaine
Vintage: 2016 Another great year for Beaujolais - the third in a row. The wines have intensity and body to match the lively freshness of the Gamay grape
Food Match: Food is where Beaujolais really scores. Yes it's a light wine often drunk on its own, but its lively acidity makes it a great match for light meat dishes (roasts obviously, but also cold meats, salami and hams)
Old Bridge Rating: Outstanding example of the Gamay grape - considerably more gutsy and full flavoured than might be expected from a Beaujolais
