Tasting note

The Beaujolais 2008 will charm you with its fresh fruit nose, reminiscent of ripe strawberries. The attack on the tongue is supple. Well-balanced, the mouth unravels the same fresh fruit flavors as the nose suggested. A real pleasure for the palate.

Suggested food pairings

Wild game, meat dishes with sauce, roasts, charcuterie and cheeses.
