Château de Vaux Beaujolais Village Nouveau 2018

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceLe Nouveau est arrive! This was my first 2018 Bojo Novo tasted, and thankfully to the care and attention of vigneron Yannick de Vermont, it's a good one. From gravel and sands, and low-intervention farming, this quick-to-market wine was partial carbonic, underwent full MLF, and spent time in raw concrete before being bottled and expedited. Juicy raspberry gummies, cherry cola is bounded by finely nippy, concrete-clinging tannins and swelled by easy acidity. The finish is savoury and tobacco smoke kissed. Yes, crack this Villages level Novo this week, or anytime in the short term, most particularly chilled.Tasted: 14 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: UK 8.00 Producer: Château de VauxVarietal: Gamay Noir
