Beaujolais Terra Iconia 2016 - Vignerons des Pierres Dorées


Beaujolais is a wonderful region just South of Burgundy, home to the Gamay grape. While this appellation suffers from the cheap image of the “Beaujolais Nouveau”, it is capable of producing fruity and pure red wine. The key in this area is to be able to choose wines carefully. Terra Iconia offers a fragrant nose of red and black fruit, but also flowers. Palate is highly aromatic with silky tannins and a nice, peppery finish. This is a lovely example showing that Beaujolais wines can be highly enjoyable!

Expert.pngWhat experts say

84/100 "Produced from vines around the hilltop village of Oingt (claimed to be the most beautiful in France), this has a soft texture, a banana flavor and light acidity. It is the sort of wine that will be better slightly chilled." (previous vintage)
