2019 "Spaciale" Fleurie
Region: Beaujolais, France
You have to have this one. I'm so obsessed with this gamay. It's balanced, complex, and texturally perfect. It's an everyday wine that can be enjoyed on its own, with some stinky cheese, pork, or red meat. Get yourself a bottle of this. As the label shows us, it out of this world.
Romain Zordan of Château de Grand Pré has Beaujolais in his veins. His father, cousin, and uncle, are all great winemakers as well. He has been making natural Beaujolais since 2009, though much of the vineyards were planted more than 60 years ago. He farms to respect the environment and allow for deep root growth leading to greater complexity of flavors and expression of terroir. He trained under the great natural winemaker Jean François Ganevat who now buys grapes from Romain for his famous field blends.
Tasting notes: Strawberry, cranberry, sage, and crushed rose petal.
