Signé Vignerons Beaujolais Chateau Rouge 2009
Legend says the "Red Cat" protected the vineyards from the insects and animals that could do harm and damage to the vines and grapes. These cats love to wander through the vineyards and villages under the bright Beaujolais moonlight. It is said that these unusual cats looked true red in color from the reflection off the bright harvest moon above, which alarmed the villagers and other animals in the area. Over time they became known as the guardians of the vines, so the winemakers dedicated themselves to producing the best quality wines in honor of these "Red Cats". This Gamay is fresh, light and fruity with intense perfumes of small red fruits and a refined finish with just the right amount of sweetness and acidity for balance. Ideal with poultry and pork, or sweet strawberries and desserts, especially delicious served slightly chilled.
