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.
