"Brilliant red. Very fragrant, displaying fresh red berry and floral scents; spice and game notes build slowly in the glass. Bitter cherry and red currant flavors are sharpened by a white pepper element and lifted by tangy acidity, which adds back-end cut. Juicy and focused on the gently tannic finish, which leaves subtle floral and herb notes behind."

2014 Domaine de Fa 'En Besset' Beaujolais
Domaine de Fa

100% Gamay

The esteemed Graillot family recently acquired 8 hectares of Beaujolais in the crus of Saint Amour (in the climat of Côte de Besset) and Fleurie, that they named Domaine de Fa. In future vintages these will be bottled as separate crus, but this inaugural vintage was bottled as a simple Beaujolais, making it a one-off and relative bargain.

Fruit is whole cluster pressed and spends 8 to 9 days of maceration on the skins. The wine is aged 10 months part in concrete tanks and part in 30 hl large barrels. (12,000 bts)
