Juicy, fresh and approachable - just what you want from Beaujolais Villages. Samantha Bailey of Boutinot's French Winemaking team works tirelessly to select this wine which is made from whole bunch Gamay grapes using the traditional carbonic maceration technique.
Exhuberant fruity red wine with juicy crushed strawberries, cherry characters and an intriguing savoury twist. The palate is soft and approachable with vibrant acidity and a mouthwatering floral, morello cherry finish.
Made by Boutinot is more than just our vineyards and cellars in France, Italy, South Africa and England. It’s our longstanding relationships with hundreds of winegrowers around the world. People in places like Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Spain and the USA. We craft our wines by both vinifying fruit from our own vineyards, and by selecting and blending wine from partner growers. Our dedicated product managers (including two Masters of Wine) work hand in hand with our experienced and highly talented winemakers and blenders. Together they bring our winemaking philosophy to life. It's their mission to ensure all Made by Boutinot wines are crafted to taste the way a Boutinot wine should. Never losing sight of our vision to create high-quality wines at every price point.
Gamay vines grown on the slopes of the rolling beaujolais hills. Whole bunch Gamay is fermented using traditional carbonic maceration techniques. Short cuvaison is used in order to keep the up front juicy fruit characters.
Try with a charcuterie platter, BBQ sausages or even with a hearty salad (salads beaujolaise = poached egg and fried bacon strips on green salad ...and don't forget the garlic!). Excellent wine for a summer picnic or alfresco dining.
Light-Bodied Red Wines
Delicately perfumed with very subtle flavours, light-bodied red wines are perfect for people who don’t want to get knocked upside the head with their wine. This style of wine is very popular with both collectors and beginners alike. Light red wines are known for having lighter tannin, bright acidity and slightly lower alcohol with red fruit flavors. They are classically served in a fish-bowl type glass that collects the aromas. As this style of wine continues to grow in popularity, you’ll see more traditionally bold red wines being made in this style.
