Tastes like: Just like a deeper darker pinot noir!!! Lovely medium bodied wine, such an easy drink. Loads of berry fruit, deep characters with a lovely soft acidic finish.
Match with: Pink lamb, proscuitto, this is a great lunchtime red. A red that will not knock your head off.
Serious AWBS notes if you need them: Made from 100% Gamay grape variety this wine shows that Beaujolais can be a serious wine. Beaujolais has acquired a bad name because for Beaujolais Nouveau, which is a very young cheap wine. This wine is like a darker version of a Pinot Noir. It has wonderful aromas of dark fruit characters; it is light in the mouth. However, it leaves a lovely persistent fruit character followed by acidity.
