Tasting Note: Beaujolais Villages typically promises to be better than basic Beaujolais, and this gamay delivers on that promise.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of bramble, black plum, kirsch, strawberry, red cherry and bubble gum.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Beaujolais Villages has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and medium tannin.

There is some chalkiness along the midpalate that combines well with the red-fruit components.

Better than basic gamay.
