A pure and vibrant Beaujolais red with fragrant red fruit aromas. The palate is a smooth with dominant dark cherry flavours, backed by bright acidity and fine tannins. A delicately textured wine for a bargain price.

How's it taste?

This stunning Jaffelin red comes from Beaujolais, and shows clearly the appeal of Gamay. A gold medal winner at the massive Concours de Beaujolais wine competition (where it edged out 700 other wines), this has the purity and vibrancy that 'Booj' is known for - a riot of dark cherry fruits, refreshing acidity and light tannins.

Who made it?

Jaffelin’s history is inseparable from that of the Collégiale Notre Dame de Beaune (the Notre Dame collegiate church in Beaune). Over the centuries, their cellars have housed the wines of the Collégiale and the Cardinals. The cellars changed ownership in 1816, when the Jaffelin brothers established themselves as negociants in the region. Today their wines rest in the monastic tranquility of the Chapitre’s cellars, just as they did eight centuries ago. Jaffelin entered a new chapter in its history in 2004, after completely renovating the vat room, and equipping it with modern winemaking equipment. They strive to bring out the Burgundy terroirs, cru by cru, wine by wine, at every stage of the winemaking process.
