Tasting Notes:

Lurid magenta. Intense dark berry, floral pastille and smoky mineral aromas, along with a hint of succulent herbs. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and candied violet flavors and a touch of allspice. Supple tannins give shape to the mineral-drenched finish, which lingers with strong persistence and building sweetness. AG

The esteemed Graillot family have long-harboured an oenological interest in Beaujolais, as well as a family home there and recently acquired 8 hectares of Beaujolais in the crus of Saint Amour (in the climat of Côte de Besset) and Fleurie, that they named Domaine de Fa. They, like several others, see a region which has real potential and that is currently undervalued. This is the first vintage of a new venture from Alain Graillot's sons Antoine and Maxime.

3ha 15-year-old vines and 5ha 40-year-old vines. The vineyards are in steep terrain, west facing and planted in Clay-limestone soil.

Grapes are naturally fermented, semi-carbonic style, with 100% whole bunches in concrete fermenters. The ferments last for 7 -10 days.

Matured in large oak barrels (20 and 30 hl Stockinger foudre and some 600 L demi-muid).

Food pairing

Pairs well with strawberry caprese salad, pork and chicken dishes.
