In its deep red robe, this is a heavily scented wine where aromas of red fruit rub shoulders with iris and violet. The fruit flavours are concentrated with structure and the tannins are silky on the palate.
Michel Guignier is a fourth generation vigneron in Villié Morgon, in the heart of the AOC Morgon appellation in Beaujolais. Guignier follows a traditional vinification “à la Beaujolaise” with no de-stemming and with only indigenous yeasts used for the fermentation. In keeping with his biodynamic practices, Michel prepares huge mounds of compost each year from cow droppings and includes the must of last year’s vintage.
Guignier’s wines display that transparent, ethereal, soil-driven quality that makes naturally-made, top Beaujolais so unique and joyful to drink.
