2019 beaujolais villages ‘or rouge’, domaine cheveau
Domaine Michel Cheveau is a 14 hectare family estate run by Nicolas Cheveau, his brother Julien and wife Aurelie. The family cellars are on the outskirts of the village of Fuissé, being built only five years ago as a result of the family house getting too cramped. The vineyards are worked by hand, by horse and by tractor, and without the use of any agrochemicals. Cheveau is one of the few vignerons who do not fertilize either, choosing to use sward management to stop soil erosion and keep a balance of nutrients in the soil. His vineyards can always be recognised for being meticulously looked after, but fizzing with life.

2020 gamay, domaine moulin camus
This 100% Gamay from the western fringes of the Loire is grown on a slope of pure mica schist which gives the wine juicy, rounded red fruits a bit of tautness and minerality. A warmer than normal, sulphur free maceration for three days helps bring out some warmth and roundness to the fruit, making it slightly beaujolais'esque but without the bubble gum/commercial edge that one would normally find in this price range.

2020 morgon cote de py, domaine grange cochard
The Morgon Cote de Py is a wonderful example of hand crafted Cru Beaujolais from the prestigious Cote de Py plateau. Made with organically grown, hand harvested grapes from a mixture of Granite and blue stone soils, the wine is made in the traditional semi-carbonic method with 2/3rds of the bunches being de-stemmed and 1/3rd left whole. The wine is matured in a mixture of cask and old barrels and bottled with minimal sulphur without fining. The result is a wonderfully complex wine that is expressive yet elegant and finely balanced. Dark fruits and kirsch like characters mingle with dried herbs, liquorice and mineral undertones along with finely poised acidity which helps the wine remain focussed. Delicious in it's youth, the Cote de Py also shows great ageing potential in the medium term and will continue to develop in complexity.

New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest. Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.
