Tasting Notes

The nose of the wine is very aromatic with spicy blackberry, clove and allspice. On the palate the wine is juicy and flavorful with enough acid to prevent it becoming heavy or jammy. More mulling spices merge with darker red fruits to complete the wine.

 

Beaujolais is found in the southernmost (and largest) district of the Burgundy region, where 50,000 acres are currently under vine; an amount equivalent to one half of Burgundy’s total production each year. The Pierres Dorees (Golden Stones) area of Beaujolais from where this bottle hails, sits prominently in the southern portion of Beaujolais, a small area often referred to as a “Tuscany in France,” due to its magic green landscapes and sun-washed vineyards. Soils in the region are rich in Granite, Schist, Clay and Sandstone. Here 39 small villages built from yellow-tinged limestone quarried centuries ago add a rustic romance and a timeless, classic sophistication reflected in both the culture and the wines. 

 
Traditionally most growers in Beaujolais sell their grapes to large Burgundy negociants or huge cooperatives, and only a minority produce estate wines themselves. Domaine Romy is one of the few grower- producers crafting wines grown in their own soils, and boast a lineage of wine production the extends ten generations into the past. Altogether the family farm estate has 30 acres of vine growing Chardonnay, Gamay, and Pinot Noir. Fruit is grown sustainably according to Terra Vitis certification requirements that call for low intervention in vineyard and cellar. Canopies are green harvested to reduce yield, and natural grasses grow between the rows to increase biodiversity in the vineyard. 
 
The wines of Domaine Romy are made by father and son in a classic style. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a slow semi-carbonic fermentation using natural yeasts, a style that preserves the characteristics of fresh fruit in the finished wine. It then rests for 9 months on the lees in stainless steel vats, before being gently filtered and bottled. Meant to be enjoyed young, the vintner suggests aging for only 2-5 years.
