Description

2022, a precious vintage born of strong contrasts
After a spring marked by frosts and unusual cold weather, the sunshine lasted throughout the summer with a record amount of sunshine.

So much so that the first grape harvest started on August 11th.

In the memory of winegrowers, this early harvest is without equivalent in the Beaujolais.

This vintage follows the pattern of 2020 or 2003, rich, powerful, with notes of ripe red fruit, raspberries and black cherries.

Well-balanced, the initially discreet palate is long and full. The fruit settles in slowly but lasts a long time.

It is a vintage made for the joys of the table, festive and convivial moments, light discussions shared with friends.

2022 is a vintage of reconciliation. Born of strong contrasts, in the image of the present times, it demonstrates that from these contrasts a delicious balance can be born.

Wines from Beaujolais

The Beaujolais region is in the southern part of Burgundy or the central-right part of France near the Swiss city of Geneva. While administratively considered part of the Burgundy wine region, the climate is closer to Rhône and the wine is sufficiently individual in character to be considered separate from Burgundy and Rhône.

Beaujolais is synonymous with the Gamay grape, as that is almost all of what they make there. Gamay is a red grape with thin skins and so produces red wine with low tannins. Gamay from the region also tends to be very light-bodied for a red wine and relatively high in acidity.

The region is also renowned internationally for it’s use of carbonic maceration. This is a winemaking technique where whole grapes are fermented in a carbon dioxide rich environment prior to crushing. Normally, wines are crushed to free the pulp and juice which is then fermented with yeast to convert the sugars into alcohol. Wines that are made by carbonic maceration are fruity and are very low in tannins as they haven’t had as much skin contact. Wines are also ready to drink quickly but lack the structure for long-term aging.
