Wine of the Week: Jean-Marc Burgaud Beaujolais Villages Les Vignes De Thoulon 2011

March 25th, 2013

Burgaud LES VIGNES DE THULONIn a small, yet distinct region in east central France called Beaujolais, sits the 5 ha vineyard of Jean-Marc Burgaud.  Burgaud’s farming is done using traditional methods of viticulture, harvesting by hand and maintaining a high vine density of 10,000 vines per ha.  This is an important feature for quality says Burgaud, it is important for Gamay to have competition in the soil so you can get little grapes with high complexity and concentration. This wine has a bright red color and is fresh and fruity on the nose. Deep cherry and plum flavours with a long finish.  It is best drunk when young, within 2 years.
