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?

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. As Antoine explains, 'Gamay is one of the most underrated grape varietals in the world compared to the pleasure it offers'. And here, all that pleasure comes at a cost of just $12.99/bottle in six packs. That's extraordinary value, especially when you place this Beaujolais up against much more expensive wines from further north in Burgundy. This isn't just Antoine's festive season drink, it's all of ours...

How was it made?

From the heart of the Beaujolais AOC comes this is extraordinarily great value Gamay. Made in the exacting traditional style of whole bunch berries and carbonic maceration, this is a bright, spritely, orchard fruit driven red that is high on the drinkability scale. Philip Bouchard, one of the new wave of value-driven negociants coming out of Burgundy has set the tone high with this wine; showering you with cherries, blackberry, and plum jam, with a lingering crisp acidity and mid-weighted intensity. Few wines come close to matching this one on the old quality to price ratio. Your Summer red has landed. Served slightly chilled.

Let’s face it - we all have very different wine tastes and not every wine you find will be right for you right now. That’s why I’ve put together a little selection of my favourites - wines that I’d be very happy to enjoy this weekend which are guaranteed to hit the spot.
