Red- Château de Grand Pré, Morgon

2019 "T Rex" Morgon

Region: Beaujolais, France

Grape: Gamay

Organic

Here's the light and juicy one from Grand Pré. If you like a slight chill or something you can have a few bottles of with friends this is the one. It's easy, juicy, and jumps right out of the bottle. With a distinct purple forward palate it's a red wine that can even work with with white fish. The soils in this part of Morgon are prehistoric and the old vines work hard for their nutrients, thus giving more character to the wine. 

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: Dark purple fruits, rose, concord grape.
