Château de Belleverne La Basse-Cour Beaujolais Villages 2014


I was a little stumped recently when asked why I like Beaujolais.  It tends more to be consumed than necessarily pondered upon.  It does fill however a permanent vacancy at home for a lighter red that works with or without food.  Visiting this (beautiful) region last year certainly didn't hurt either (you can see my notes here).  This wine is actually a pretty good Beaujolais Villages from Château de Belleverne that punches above its appellation.  The Beaujolais that land in Australia can have some intensity to them, and this fits the pattern.  Aromatics of cherries.  The palate is fresh with a full flavoured expression of cherry and redcurrants.  Lovely drinking.  Rating: Good
