Wegmans Exclusive

This is a Cru Beaujolais from a single climate within the Moulin-a-Vent appellation. The Champ de Cour is a Clos (walled vineyard) at the base of the slope just below the famous windmill. Vines here struggle in poor soils of decomposed pink granite with sand and silt. All fruit is manually harvested, rigorously sorted, fermented with natural yeasts, and aged in oak barrels for 10 months.

Harvest Note
This was a very warm and early vintage with a slight lack of moisture which reduced the harvest volumes while ensuring complexity and phenolic ripeness
Tasting Note
This wine exudes dark fruit and floral aromas with hints of ground coffee. Bold and expansive on the palate, the flavor evolution is shaped by substantial yet fine tannins and tangy acidity over the long finish.
Food Pairing
Ideal for both fine and casual cuisines, anything from grilled meats or stews to barbeque.
