The previous vintage of this perfect light red was a My Wine Guy icon, wooing us so much that we were calling it the red of last summer, and recommending it so often that it finished as our #1 bestselling French wine of 2019.
Made by a branch of the famous Bouchard family (Philippe Bouchard based in Aloxe-Corton), this is the picture-perfect Beaujolais too. A beautiful red wine that any Pinot fan will love, and it even works with a light chill.
The man who deserves the credit for unearthing this red is our head buyer, Antoine. Antoine grew up just a 45 min drive from Beaujolais in Lyon and was born with Gamay running through his veins instead of blood.
As Antoine explains, 'Gamay is one of the most underrated grape varietals in the world compared to the pleasure it offers'.
What makes wines like this great? Antoine puts it best: 'Beaujolais boasts amazing crunchy, fresh, clean, red fruit characters... it's the perfect light red wine'.
And here, all that pleasure can be yours from just $13.99/bottle - a price which automatically makes this the best value Beaujolais in Australia.
Vibrant Beaujolais in the true style - i.e. extremely drinkable (and delicious). Pretty red fruits, that hint of pepper too.
Philippe Bouchard is a Burgundian negociant working with wines from both Burgundy and the Rhone, with wines spanning entry level products right through to Grand Cru Burgundy. Wines are very much built in the classic style, the winemaking halfway between non-interventionist and more modern methods.
