"Bright violet. Expressive red fruit and floral scents are complemented by hints of smoky minerals and exotic spices. Appealingly sweet cherry and raspberry flavors show juicy, primary character and very good precision and lift. Finishes long and smooth, displaying repeating floral and cherry notes and strong persistence."

"A nicely settled nose with a vibrant array of strawberries, leading to a quite luscious and velvety palate. Great freshness and length here. Drink now."

Product Description:

"Light ruby with purple tones, with aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The palate has silky red fruits balanced by lively acidity. Pair with all meats, chicken, wild mushrooms, and strong cheeses. Serve slightly chilled.

Château de la Chaize is among the oldest, most historic estates in Burgundy’s Beaujolais region. Boasting over 250 acres of vineyards, it is also one of the largest. The property is currently owned and managed by the Marquise de Roussy de Sales family, who transformed Château de la Chaize into one of the most innovative and forward-thinking producers in the region. Among its many initiatives is the adoption of eco-friendly winemaking practices. Château de la Chaize is located in the Brouilly appellation, the largest of the Beaujolais Crus and where the predominant grape planted is Gamay." - Importer
