Justin Dutraive Beaujolais Villages 'Les Tours' 2016

Fruit for Justin Dutraive’s Beaujolais Villages comes from the crus of Brouilly and Cote de Brouilly, grown in very fine, granitic soils. Organically farmed and semi-carbonically vinified, the wine is fresh yet structured, with slightly more power than ‘Les Bullands.’ Pair with game, tacos, or veggie burgers.

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
