Beaujolais Nouveau update

The Beaujolais region is still enjoying ideal weather conditions, but during the last 15 days, the majority of our activity has been in the vathouse.
The vinifications are fairly harmonious, with grapes of good quality.
The fermenting tanks have now almost all been drawn off.
The wines are now undergoing their malolactic fermentation and we can already gauge the colour and style of the wines.
The robes are a deep red purple colour. The aromas are particularly fruity this year, with a dominance of small red fruit aromas. This announces a very approachable vintage.
