About this Red Wine

Fans of Beaujolais will know when that this Northern French red can be light and airy with perfumed red fruits and zippy acidity. Fans of Beaujolais will also know that from the more premium sites, in Cru villages and similar, these perfumed fruits are instead flanked by firm, medium bodies and fleshy red and dark berry fruit characters, presenting wines that are both approachable and age-worthy. The Villages expression from Madone falls squarely into the latter here, with a wine that is as playful as it is serious. Heeps of attractive ripe, stewing berry fruits are joined by some earthy notes brought right into balance by a characteristic acidity that makes this perfect for a summer's evening. A turn towards Beaujolais' more adult side for those looking to see how good this appellation can be, with passionate winemakers at the helm and with some of the best vineyards in the region!
