Domaine Pascal Granger Beaujolais Villages 2010
The vineyards for this classic red of the region are situated just north of Juliénas in the commune of Jullié. The soil is granite-based and composition is essentially in the form of small pebbles which afford excellent drainage. After hand-harvesting, the grapes are fermented for eight to ten days as whole bunches. Then, the wine is drawn off into vats and is aged an additional six months prior to bottling. Approximately 3000 bottles are imported to the USA annually.
