This Beaujolais-Villages Gamay is generous and fruity.

Domaine de Bel-Air, owned and operated by Jean-Marc Lafont is producing Beaujolais wines of great finesse. It is indeed Jean-Marc’s exemplary work in his very well-located vineyards that is the key to these magnificent wines. The Beaujolais-Villages is from a vineyard surrounding the Domaine on the hill of Bel-Air and a vineyard in the village of Quincié. The vines are on average 50 years old and add to the complexity of this wine.

The Beaujolais-Villages “Granits Bleus” draws out delicious flavours of blackcurrant, violet on the nose with a generous and driven mouthfeel. It pairs well with charcuterie, quiche or is perfect by itself as an aperitif.

This wine is ready to drink now or can be cellared up until 2022. 100% Gamay.

"This Beaujolais-Villages is a very good representative of the appellation with a charming fresh dark fruit. On the palate, the Gamay is ample, with a clever tannic structure adding freshness to the taste."

At Domaine de Bel-Air, from harvest to the bottling, the process is gentle and simple. All the grapes are harvested by hand with a first selection made in the vineyard. Any damaged or unripe grapes are discarded and the remainder are taken to the winery. The grapes are then sorted a second time on a sorting table to further eliminate damaged berries and grapes that are not ripe enough. Finally, these select grapes are put into an open vat to undergo alcoholic fermentation.

When the process is finished, the remaining grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and the wine is matured in a stainless steel vat for seven months before bottling.
