Description

Domaines Dominique Piron 2018 Beaujolais-Villages

This 2018 vintage has aged elegantly and is now ready to drink, serve this fine bottle over a simple dinner to elevate the entire experience.

Domaine Dominiquee Piron Beaujolais-Villages has an aroma characterized by blackcurrant and strawberry and a beautiful structure that complements its elegant complexity. It has a nice touch of freshness and a well-balanced tannic edge. This bouquet is light and fine and can be served at informal dinners with lightly seasoned poultry and fish, and goes exceptionally well with cold cuts.

The vines used for the Beaujolais-Villages appellation surround the vineyard area on the hills of the Northern Beaujolais. They have an eastern exposure at sunrise and benefited from the sandy granite soil made up of small stones to capture the heat of the sun and this enhances the natural freshness of the fruit. This bottle is made up of 100% Gamay Noir which is grown from vines with an average age of 50 years.

Gamay is the heart and soul of Beauolais crus. It is a cross between Pinot noir and Gouais Blanc vine varieties. Gamay was originally imported from Croatia by the Huns in the 4th century and is a delicate variety and has is either excellent or nothing at all. Gamay is a remarkable variety because it can either be enjoyed young for its fruitiness and elegance or allowed to age and develop structure and mineral qualities.

The grapes are harvest manually with very light, partial destemming. Semi-carbonic fermentation then begins in cement and stainless steel vats. The fermentation does not exceed 8 – 10 days in order to preserve the freshness and aromas of the fruit. This vinification is a traditional Beaujolais process.

    3.8: Pale ruby in the glass, light nose. Primary aromas of red fruit- ripe cherries and very subtle pepper. Dry, with high acidity, low tannins. Light bodied, medium minus intensity. Primary flavours of juicy red fruit (cherries, raspberries, red currants). Simple but juicy finish to go with a light vegetable forward meal.
