    Colonge’s Beaujolais-Villages is the epitome of what Beaujolais is all about. Light, fresh and full of juicy fruit.

    Morgon “Côte du Py” 2017, Domaine de la Chaponne, Laurent Guillet, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    BJ06

    We always felt that Laurent Guillet was a star in the Beaujolais and now that he has his father’s old vines in the Côte de Py the results are stunning. He is also making delicious Chiroubles from his wife’s family vineyard.

     

    The Morgon is from 50-60 year old vines. Fermentation is in a mixture of steel and cement vats with 8 months ageing in both vats and foudre (1000+ litre barrels).

    Fleurie 2017, Domaine André Colonge et Fils, 13% vol, 75cl

    BJ13

    The Colonge family have been making wine in this part of the Beaujolais region since 1789. Lying in the heart of the northern, Cru, area of the region, they are based in the commune of Lancié.  The estate comprises  37 hectares divided between 4 appellations: Fleurie, Brouilly, Beaujolais-Villages and Beaujolais.

     

    Colonge have 7.3 hectares of Fleurie vineyards on south/south eastern facing slopes.

     

    Fermentation is by semi-carbonic maceration combined with whole bunch fermentation. Maceration lasts around 10 days. This allows the wine to get the tannic structure required for ageing. Bottling is after the Easter following the harvest, for a cellaring potential of 5 to 6 years.

    Deep ruby red in appearance with crimson tints. The nose is floral with spice aromas at the fore giving way to red fruits and vanilla. The palate is complex, fleshy and creamy with silky tannins and very ripe black fruit.

  • Brouilly 2017, Château des Tours, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    Brouilly 2017, Château des Tours, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    BJ18

    Situated at the foot of Mount Brouilly, this estate of some 70 hectares of vines, produces delicious Brouilly. The vineyards are on weathered granite, the soil is shallow and poor – sandy, acid and containing rock debris. Deeper down the subsoil is rich in mineral elements such as iron, potassium and manganese giving the wine its special character.

     

    The grapes are hand picked, sorted and de-stemmed before being put into temperature controlled stainless steel vats for a long (2-3 week) maceration period during which the chapeau de marc -the cap of the grape skins- is regularly pushed down into the juice (pigeage), to enhance the aromatics, colour and body of the finished wine.

     

    After pneumatic pressing, the malolactic fermentation takes place gently and slowly throughout the winter after which the wine is bottled in the spring. The wines are always aged for several months at the château before release.

     

    Bright, deep purple in appearance, the bouquet is dominated by notes of ripe fruit. In the mouth it is full and silky with soft, supple tannins – serious and classic Beaujolais.

  • Moulin-à-Vent 2016, Domaine de L’Iris, Thierry Janin, 13% vol, 75cl

    Moulin-à-Vent 2016, Domaine de L’Iris, Thierry Janin, 13% vol, 75cl

    BJ01

    A super property beautifully situated just below Le Château du Moulin-à-Vent with very fine terroir. Thierry Janin is a true “vigneron”! He owns 1 hectare and rents and works a further 6 hectares on a metayage basis – receiving a proportion of the production.

     

    Thierry adheres to organic principles in the vineyards. In most years the grapes are whole bunch fermented. Minimal doses of SO2 are usually added during fermentation and just before bottling. The wine is very lightly filtered.

     

    The Moulin-à-Vent comes from 45 – 55 year old vines and is aged in old foudres.

  • Fleurie “Vieille Vignes” 2017, Domaine de la Madone, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    Fleurie “Vieille Vignes” 2017, Domaine de la Madone, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    BJ09

    This first class Domaine is run by the Després family. It is located at the top of the renowned hill of “La Madone”, the granitic hill immediately above the village of Fleurie where most of the Domaine’s 19 hectares of are located. This hillside is often considered to have the best growing conditions for wine in the area.

     

    Arnaud has taken over the work started by his father Jean-Marc, and the quality of recent vintages are testament to his hard work and skill both in the vineyards and the winery.

     

    The Vieille Vignes is from 80 year old vines and has more depth and richness than most Fleurie whilst retaining a lovely elegant lift.

     

    The wine has a very deep purple appearance with a nose full of ripe red fruit aromas – raspberry and strawberry with a hint of spice. The palate is full, with red fruit flavours layered over a warming spice and mineral core – very impressive.
