alexandre burgaud beaujolais-lantignie 2019 750ml
This is Beaujolais-Villages at its best from our friend Alex Burgaud. Alex, a volunteer fireman in his spare time, kept his cool in the heatwave of summer 2018; harvesting early to capture as much freshness (acidity) as possible. The resulting wine is bright in colour and ebullient in nature, brimming with floral and red fruit aromas. There’s a touch of granitic grip to the palate, which adds gravitas. Drink it lightly chilled with anything from charcuterie to halloumi burgers.

"This producer based in the village of Lantignié has made a ripe, smoothly textured wine. Full of black fruits rich with juicy acidity and spicy notes, the wine is dense and ready to drink."
