The Beaujolais “Rochebonne” is made of old Gamay grapes grown near the famous Pierres Dorées area. The oldest vines on this vineyard were planted in 1922, which brings a lot of structure and character to the wine. The nose is typical of a Beaujolais with plenty of fruit like cherry, raspberry or blueberry. It’s a light to medium-bodied wine, fine and smooth on the palate with notes of liquorice and pepper towards the end.!

|What experts say|
84/100 "The wine has pure ripe cherry fruit and a soft texture laced with intense acidity. This is an immediately attractive wine, full of fruit grown on clay soil, and with a light tannic edge to give it shape."
|14/20 "Here is a red to the blood thickness! Concentrated nose meets a full and vinous juice that has a soft bottom for a salivating finish. A good Beaujolais to serve by the glass."|
