2017 Philippe Bouchard Beaujolais

2017 Philippe Bouchard Beaujolais

What makes this red great? Antoine puts it best: 'Beaujolais boasts amazing crunchy, fresh, clean, red fruit characters... it's the perfect summer red'. 

Made by a branch of the famous Bouchard family (Philippe Bouchard based in Aloxe-Corton), this is the picture-perfect Beaujolais too. A beautiful light red that any Pinot fan will love - and it even works with a light chill.

How's it taste?

Bright and vibrant with lifted red fruits, and an almost candied-cherry note. The palate is light and juicy, with nice acidity and lovely clean finish. Supremely drinkable.

How was it made?

The regional appellation using the term ‘village’ means that the plots of vines are within the 39 Beaujolais-Villages communes within the Beaujolais vinegrowing area. This appellation covers 6070 hectares.

Vinification in stainless steel vats at 30°C for the semi-carbonic maceration. The wine then remains in the vats for 3 to 6 months.
