Domaine de la Prebende Beaujolais 2015


SKU 01817


Domaine de la Prébende produces a deeply mineral Beaujolais from a predominantly clay and limestone terroir, a rarity in a region dominated by granite soils. "Une prébende" essentially means "a tax," and the domaine sits on the location where monks used to collect taxes from the villagers.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Beaujolais sees a little maturation in cement but is mostly raised in stainless steel and had been bottled in March. This comes from vines on limestone/clay soils. It offers pure and quite harmonious crushed strawberry and raspberry coulis aromas on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with satisfying raspberry and brambly red berry fruit notes, a noticeable saline tincture that develops towards the punchy and quite powerful finish. Very fine.

Wine EnthusiastA bright cherry and banana flavored wine, this is fresh and fruity. It has a light structure that helps to keep it all together along with the acidity for final crispness. Drink now.
