Gamay Beaujolaischateau de Boisfranc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Chteau de Boisfranc is located on the plateau of Jarnioux in the heart of the Beaujolais region of Eastern France. Here, the Gamay grape reigns supreme. It is made into a popular "nouveau" wine each November and flown quickly to the U.S. for celebrations around Thanksgiving. In France, the region's nouveau wine traditionally was shipped to Paris bistros each fall, where it was enjoyed as a light quaffing wine to celebrate the new vintage.Gamay's ripe, sensuous fruit flavors make it an ideal nouveau wine, but it also can be made into a heartier springtime wine to enjoy for 1-2 years after bottling, when it is at its peak of freshness and flavor.Thierry Doat has taken over this estate from his father Robert. Both men began conversion to organic agriculture in 1982. Today, the estate vineyards carry the certification of Biofranc and Ecocert, two French organizations that support organic farmers.Chteau de Boisfranc's vines are close to 60 years old and produce less than younger vines, but they yield a finely flavored wine with the ability to hold its flavor longer than many other Beaujolais.Only the oldest vines were used for this "Springtime Beaujolais." Taste its rich berry fruits, enhanced by aromas of vanilla and spices! It is a wine of pleasure, to be enjoyed on its own, with light meats or cheeses, as well as over red berries for a memorable dessert.VEGANAOC Beaujolais; 100% Gamay Noir Jus BlancAlcohol Content: 11.5% AGING POTENTIAL : 2 to 3 years
