2016 Cote de Brouilly "Vieilles Vignes" (Piret, Domaine Jacky)

Jacky Piret, Cote de Brouilly Vieilles Vignes, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France 2016

{sustainable} 100% Gamay

BLACK RASPBERRY, VIOLET & IRIS, SLATEY MINERALS

Deft hands in the winery meet with the perfectly ripened fruit from 65 year-old vines grown in some of the finest blue shale soils in all of Beaujolais; a recipe for serious, elegant wine. Clean, slatey minerality runs through bloomy, floral aromatics and soft rich fruit like veins of precious ore glistening in a mountainside. See that? This wine made us paint a pretty picture in your mind. We can't help it with Gamay this good.

Serving Suggestion: Mussels and sausage in a rich curry broth, frites on the side. Panade (giant casserole) of tomato, chard, gruyere, and rustic bread.

2016 Fleurie "Granits des Moriers" (Piret, Domaine Jacky)

Domaine Jacky Piret, Fleurie "Granits des Moriers", Beaujolais, France, 2016

{organic} 100% Gamay

SPICED STRAWBERRY & CHERRY FRUIT WITH A LONG FINISH

Madame Frédérique Piret has technically taken over for her "retired" husband Jacky. Jacky does no less than before, it's just a French legal thing about his retirement age. The estate goes back generations and this plot has an average age of 60 year old vines. 100% hand harvested and aged using traditional carbonic maceration techniques, results in a rich, strawberry and cherry fruit laden wine of medium to full-body and a ringer for their brothers in Burgundy. Much bolder than you would expect of Beaujolais.

Serving Suggestion: Turkey dark meat, i.e. thigh and leg with black pepper and butter under the skin or roasted butternut squash with caramelized onions and savory cream.
