Dive into the Beaujolais deep end! Very earthy and balsamic, this is concentrated and powerful, but also quite tart. Long, focused and rather tannic finish, but the tannins are really good and there’s also a strong mineral component. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Vines planted in 1939 on the En Rémont vineyard give great concentration as well as dark black fruits. This wine's tannins are still young, richly structured while not masking the potential fruitiness. The wine will age well. Drink from 2022.

Pascal Aufranc farms a parcel of ancient vines at the border of the forest in Chénas, providing a wine with intriguing earthiness, its tannins powerful and gripping against the equally intense black-raspberry fruit. It's saturated, firm and substantial, a wine for steak or for the cellar.
