About The Pack
It's become something of a trope nowadays, however it's truer now than ever: if you want 'value' in Burgundy, you've got to drink Beaujolais.
These six wines demonstrate the excellence of modern-day Beaujolais. These six scintillating Gamays come from all corners of the region and showcase the great terroirs from the finest crus. In fact they are all Cru Beaujolais, representing six of the ten Crus.
Some of Beaujolais' most iconic names are featured here as well as some rising stars. For the enthusiast or for the novice, this pack is epic. And Badass.
2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Brouilly
Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in Beaujolais, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus.
Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. His expression of Brouilly shows all the charm and easy-drinking appeal that the Cru is famous for.
Brouilly is the fleshier, more supple of the Dominique Piron Crus.
It's a slightly richer, softer and more supple wine than the powerful Morgon or the mineral-charged Fleurie. It's perhaps the most approachable immediately and this is a very successful vintage of this cuveé.Read more about 2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Brouilly
2019 Marc Delienne Arpay A la Folie Saint-Amour Gamay
Je t'aime a la folie...I love you madly...
Australia's love affair with Gamay and Beaujolais continues, and we love it too. This light, fresh expression is Marc's most delicate wine, sourced from the eastern part of the Saint-Amour commune, where there's lots of alluvial, stony soils.
Violet, floral, red fruit aromatics with a gentle crushed rock mouthfeel, a real linear almost thirst-quenching style of great quality.
What's not to love, apart from the low amount of available stock?Read more about 2019 Marc Delienne Arpay A la Folie Saint-Amour Gamay
2019 Thivin Beaujolais Villages Vignes d'Ecussol
Dashing and delicious Beaujolais Villages from old vines outside the Mont Brouilly home of Chateau Thivin, in the village of Quincie.
It has a cool, gentle, easy-drinking vibe - all the aspects of Gamay that has gained the previously-maligned grape so much recent popularity.
A premium everyday-drinker from one of Beaujolais' top producer.
Bottled under screwcap too!Read more about 2019 Thivin Beaujolais Villages Vignes d'Ecussol
2019 Georges Descombes Regnie
The Regnie from modern-day luminary Beaujolais producer Georges Descombes is all about silky seduction.
It's the wine in the Descombes range that is unshamedly fruit-forward and built for pure drinking pleasure.
The fruit is sweet and juicy with a silky, slippery palate. It takes the sophistication of cru Beaujolais and delivers it with side of cheeky slurpability.
If you like your Gamay bright and brimming with fruit, Regnie is for you.Read more about 2019 Georges Descombes Regnie
2020 Domaine Charnay Beaujolais
Thibault Charnay only decided to bottle his own wines in 2019 so this is just the second release of his classic Beaujolais.
His family vineyards, recently converted to organics, are based in the golden soils, the 'Terres Dorees' in the southern part of the Beaujolais.
We loved the freshness, minerality and drive of this juicy beauty, with plenty of cherry and wild herb flavours and a stoney, slaty frame.Read more about 2020 Domaine Charnay Beaujolais
2019 Domaine de la Merize Moulin a Vent Beaujolais
Old vine and old school complex Beaujolais is a wonderful thing. Unadorned by neither oak nor artifice, the Domaine de la Merize is a pure expression of the great Moulin a Vent Beaujolais Cru.
Quieter at first glance than other more boisterous Gamays, this is a subtle, building wine that evolves into a dark fruited, almost aniseed/ licorice palate of seriousness and fine structure.
A small producer, relatively under the radar, which suits owner Patrick Bertrand just fine!Read more about 2019 Domaine de la Merize Moulin a Vent Beaujolais
