For us this French wine region is so under-rated. During the 1970’s and 1980’s Beaujolais Nouveau was thriving and although good fun, and often very drinkable, it did nothing for the reputation of this beautiful region. If you have the time and can travel through this region today, you will find some amazing wines. They are generally on the lighter side and the Gamay variety is the driving force, but look around and you will find producers making exceptional wines with depth and character. We fell in love with Manoir du Carra, quite a long time ago and our relationship is still going strong. There wines are normally unfiltered, show great intensity and depth and are certainly worth trying.
A beautiful soft and rounded palate, a very elegant wine that leaves an enticing taste in the end.
Subtle aromas of red fruit (raspberry, strawberry), with some floral prints (hyacinths, violet). Very ample on the palate, with soft tannins.
Featuring fine balance and texture, with accessible flavours of mulberry, ripe black currant, fragrant tobacco, ground spice and mineral.
