Michel Picard Beaujolais Villages
Dark crimson in color, this Beaujolais is quite refreshing served chilled. The Gamey grape is naturally low in tannin and its nose is unmistakable with is floral aromas and flavors of black cherry and raspberry with hints of violets and roses.
Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
The grapes are sourced exclusively at the Chateau de Nety located in the northern area of the Beaujolais region. Nety is the name of a hill located near the village of Saint-Etienne des Oulliers in the neighborhood of the cru Brouilly. The soils are clay and limestone. Grapes are hand harvested and are sourced from growers keeping yields 20-30 percent below the amounts allowed. Traditional fermentation called carbonic maceration where clusters of grapes are put whole into the fermenting tanks and fermentation takes place inside each grape. The wine is aged on lees for a relatively short time in stainless steel tanks then bottled where it will continue to evolve more fruit, flower and spice flavors.
