Les Beaujolais primeurs Beaujolais primeur Rosé Les Griottes

Beaujolais Nouveau rosé is a wine of unequalled freshness. Its rareness and originality make it a great wine to wow your friends with. The pale pink robe with fuchsia notes is a surprising reminder of pomegranate seeds!

Personality of the cuvee

Pierre-Marie has never made his rosé by bleeding (that is to say, drawing the juice off a vat of red Beaujolais to make it more concentrated) but has always vinified his as a wine in its own right. We decided to make Beaujolais Nouveau rosé in October 2011 after one of our customers asked us to. This is an out of the ordinary product.

From the vine to the glass

1 hectare of Gamay in Le Bois d’Oingt, siliceous-clay soil giving light and fruity wines. Integrated vinegrowing, manual harvest, Guyot pruning. Vinification: a cuvée in its own right, with direct pressing after 1 to 2 days maceration depending on the year. No yeast seeding, no chaptalisation, minimum SO2, pneumatic pressing.

Food and wine pairings

Starters, a variety of salads, grilled meats, barbecue, seafood, savoury pastries, fish, fish terrine, ideal with Exotic cuisines including West Indian and Asian, desserts and fruit sorbets.
