Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais Villages Nouveau 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Located in Le Perréon—in the superior hilly northern part of the region—Domaine de la Madone is run by the Bererd family, whose Beaujolais ancestry dates back to the 16th century. The vineyards of Madone are contiguous to the crus of Brouilly, Beaujolais’ southernmost cru, though their altitude is even higher—equal to that of the regal crus Chénas, Fleurie, Juliénas, etc. This altitude yields wines of greater complexity and depth than nearly any other wines designated Beaujolais-Villages, with the steep pink granite slopes upon which they grow their Gamay offer some of the most truly dramatic vistas in the region. Brothers Olivier, Bruno and Frédéric farm their vineyards of low-yielding old vines using integrated pest management, and they harvest, by hand, only when the grapes have achieved optimal ripeness - Importers Notes

Burgundy, FranceDomaine de la Madone Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau is a wonderful wine to enjoy the Gamay varietal in celebration of the new harvest. Olivier and Katerina Bererd, proprietors of Domaine de la Madone, farm this family vineyard where many of their low-yielding Gamay vines are 100 years old. Madone has consistently received critical acclaim from Robert Parker, who called the winery an Outstanding Producer awarded 5 Stars in his Wine Buyers Guide. Located in Le Perreon, in the superior hilly northern part of the Beaujolais region, the vineyards of Madone are contiguous to the crus of Brouilly, Beaujolais southernmost cru, though their altitude is even higher. This altitude yields wines of greater complexity and depth than nearly any other wines designated Beaujolais-Villages. Brothers Olivier, Bruno and Frederic farm their vineyards of low-yielding old vines using integrated pest management. They harvest by hand and not until the grapes have achieved optimal ripeness. The new 2013 vintage in Beaujolais and Burgundy shaped up to be a classic. Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau is deep ruby-purple in color, medium in body, with soft, round tannins. It offers a beautiful nose and palate of cherries, raspberries, violets and spice. With well balanced fruit, acidity and tannins, the wine shows ripe red fruit on the lasting finish.Enjoy Domaine de la Madone Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau over the next 1-2 years with Thanksgiving turkey & trimmings, poultry, salads, and cheeses.
