Tasting Notes

From the deep south of Beaujolais in the village of Lachassagne, where the soils are clay and limestone as opposed to granite, Bernard Vallette is farming 6 ha passed down through his family from his grandparents. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts using carbonic maceration and a comparatively lengthy aging in stainless steel. The resulting wines are charming and immensely drinkable in their youth, but also develop nicely with a few years of age.

Staff Pick Notes

The Bernard Vallette Beaujolais Quatre Saisons is truly a wine for all four seasons. Equally delightful in front of a fire during the winter and served slightly chilled in summer. A joy to drink while buds break during spring, those first warm days making you yearn for more, and so pleasurable when that first autumn chill hits the air, like drinking a warm hug. This Gamay is what they all strive to be: light, vibrant, utterly quaffable. Pomegranate, red currant, freeze dried raspberry, and tart red cherry take the lead, making way for crushed rock minerality. A true year-round crowd pleaser, stock up now!

Beaujolais-Villages is a step up. Compared to basic Beaujolais, the rules for Beaujolais-Villages wines are more strict. Villages wine is produced in far smaller quantities. Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
