From the Chateau des Tours winery at the foot of Mount Brouilly, this 100% hand-picked Gamay Beaujolais wine comes from mineral-heavy vineyards, once an ancient volcanic plug. All this makes for an exciting terroir. The Brouilly region is usually the more bold in body of the Beaujolais Cru’s, and this is the case with this Chateau des Tours offering.
Violets, strawberries and plum on the nose, this Gamay translates into a well-balanced Beaujolais, with gentle acidity, silky tannins, stunning red and black fruits on the palate, and hints of a spicy backbone. Enjoy with pates, cheeses, poultry, roast dishes, fish and pasta.
Beaujolais can be enjoyed slightly chilled to make a pleasant summer drink too!
If you’re a novice at French wine, and you’re a lover of Pinot Noir – this is the one for you!
