Staff Pick Notes

Look closely at the label of this bottle. It says Beaujolais, then the village name Lantingnié. So this is a Beaujolais villages, but from the specific village of Lantingnié. Why is this important, you ask? Well, the Lantingnié Villages Gamay grapes are prized for their deep color and depth of flavor. The Gamay grapes for this Beaujolais Lantingnié were grown on a south-facing granite slope, and the wine was made in the classic Beaujolais way: whole bunch fermentation, carbonic maceration, natural yeasts. Ripe currant fruit on the nose hints at the full, ripe, and firm mouth feel. This is a wine with depth and soul that belies the price. Pair with a slight chill and your favorite meal. Enjoy!
