Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Domaine Chignard Juliénas Beauvernay beaujolais, france
$45

The vineyard faces 'plein sud' or directly south giving it excellent exposition to the ripening sun.
The soil here is different to the pink granite of Fleurie; here we are on blue 'diorite' which is another type of igneous rock. The wine is very pretty, a gorgeous cherry colour again in 2017 leads into charming aromas of strawberries, cherries and rocks. In the mouth it brings a smile to the face - it's purity, crunchy fresh fruit and silky length make for a very attractive, delicious wine.
