"Bright violet color. Spicy and sharply focused on the highly aromatic nose, displaying fresh cherry and dark berry aromas and a suggestion of succulent flowers. Taut and energetic on the palate, offering bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors that are supported by a spine of juicy acidity. At once powerful and lively, showing firm closing thrust, harmonious tannins and lingering floral and spice notes. -- Josh Raynolds"

The Wine
From a selection of vines on coteaux du Mont Bessay, it exhibits the specific characteristics of a Burgundian winemaking. It has been aged 24 months in barrels before bottling to obtain the right mellowness and great ageing potential.

The Estate
Michel Tête works the old-fashioned way. As a winemaker, he follows quasi-Burgundian techniques for his Beaujolais-Villages and Juliénas, with a semi-carbonic maceration where the cap of skins is kept submerged in the juice, and remontages break it several times a day. Tête’s wines are fleshy and generous, have intense color, lively berry aromas, and notes of black pepper.
