Domaine Cheveau, La Villa Violette 1685 Saint-Amour 2015, Beaujolais, France
Tasting Note: Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black cherry, violet and black plum.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied gamay has a creamy texture with flavors on the nose continuing to the palate.
The wine is medium in acidity and ripe tannin.
The gamay is very good in quality because of its fruit concentration.
Drink now; not suitable for aging.
Bottle Note: Each wine bearing the “Rosenthal Wine Merchant” mark has been produced in limited quantities by a dedicated artisan. The growers with whom I work follow traditional methods and produce their wines in a natural manner as possible. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the wines I select are unfined and unfiltered. Therefore, you may find that a sediment forms in the bottle. This is a natural occurrence. All my wines are shipped from the estates at which they were bottled to the point of distribution in the United States with every care taken to protect them from the vagaries of temperature fluctuation.
