Domaine du Père Benoit Beaujolais RED, vintage 2021.
100% Gamay. Average age of the vines used to grow this wine is 85 years. Domaine du Père Benoit is a fifth generation estate at the forefront of modern Beaujolais whose quality and prestige are anchored in its extremely old vineyard holdings.
You can really see the benefits of having such ancient vines in even this entry level red from the Père Benoit range with surging and vivacious fruit perfume, black cherry and raspberry compote, cinnamon and wood notes, while the palate has devastating drinkability, fresh and suave, elegant and balanced. Classic new wave Beaujolais.
