2018 Beaujolais-Villages, Domaine André Colonge HALVES

Tasting Notes

A lovely deep crimson robe with purple-blue tints. The fresh and mouth-watering nose is bursting with crunchy red fruit and sweet spice, backed up by a touch of pear drop and strawberry sticking to the freshness and youth shown on the nose, the attack is an explosion of crunchy ripe red fruit, backed up by lovely silky tannins. The delightfully round mouthfeel doesn't lack structure, fanning out over the palate to finish on rich strawberry jam notes. A fresh, lip-smacking wine to savour; the Gamay grape in all its fruity glory...

Vineyard Information

The combination of Serge with his two sons Landry and Samuel makes for an interesting team at Colonge. There is nothing like sons or daughters coming in to spur their father on! They now own 7.5 hectares of Beaujolais, 20 hectares of Villages and 7.3 hectares in Fleurie. The average age of the vines is at least 30 years old with some 100 years old. Vinification is traditional in a mix of cement tanks and stainless steel, all in temperature controlled chais. The wines are rich and gutsy in style, rather like Serge and always give pleasure.
