Domaine des Terres Dorees Beaujolais l'Ancien Vieilles Vignes 2010
Made from Jean-Paul's oldest vines, which have fewer berries, smaller grapes, a tighter bunch, and a more concentrated flavor. He is able to harvest the grapes later because there is far less risk of rot, owing to the small bunches. The grapes are harvested late with a high natural sugar level. The wine is vinified using traditional Burgundy techniques.
A supple, easy-drinking red, showing lots of black currant and blackberry flavors, with accents of violet, tea leaf and tobacco. Modest finish. Drink now.
