Cru Beaujolais holds significant importance in the world of wine for several reasons. Unlike the more widely known Beaujolais Nouveau, which is released shortly after harvest, Cru Beaujolais represents a selection of ten superior villages within the Beaujolais region. These villages, including names like Morgon, Fleurie, Julienas and Côte de Brouilly, produce wines of exceptional quality and unique terroirs. The Gamay grape thrives in these specific cru vineyards, resulting in wines that showcase depth, complexity, and a sense of place. The distinction of Cru Beaujolais lies in its ability to produce age-worthy, nuanced red wines that transcend the light and fruity stereotypes often associated with the broader Beaujolais category, contributing to the overall diversity and prestige of the global wine landscape.

 

2021 Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes
Côte de Brouilly
The bouquet exudes vibrancy and complexity, emanating from the glass with a medley of cherries, sweet cranberries, vine smoke, and a rich foundation of dark soil tones. Notes of gamebird and a touch of fresh thyme grace the upper register. On the palate, the wine reveals brightness, full-bodied character, and a transparent personality. It's moderately tannic, featuring a sappy core of fruit, precise focus, balanced elements, and a finish that is both long and seamlessly intricate.

Domaine de la Cadette
​Julienas

Fresh and vibrant, this Gamay exudes fragrances of crushed violets, raspberry, and aromatic herbs. The palate is dominated by rhubarb notes, complemented by flavors of plum, cherry, and a subtle minerality. This traditional Juliénas offers a well-defined structure, rich fruitiness, and concludes with an earthy, spiced finish.
