Sourced from a fifty year old vineyard around the 12th Century fortification of the Château de la Pierre, this Beaujolais Villages is aged on the lees in stainless steel vats to preserve the intense fruit character. You might taste ripe cherries and blueberries and a touch of pepper and mineral bite on the finish. A rounded, fruit-driven red that would match well with duck with a red fruit sauce or a plate of charcuterie.

Buy this if...you love fruit, tannins not so much.

'The spicy, fruit-driven fullness of this wine reflects the 2015 perfectly.'
Andy Cronshaw, Manchester Evening News, 5th Aug 2017

The Producer

With a history going back over 300 years, Maison Jean Loron knows a thing or two about the production of top Beaujolais. The house is now owned by the 8th generation of the Loron family, Xavier Barbet, who in 2016 handed over the day to day running of the business to Philippe Bardet. Today the house owns 120 hectares of vineyards across seven of the Beaujolais Cru as well as owning and working with growers in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy.

The Winemaker

Technical director Jean-Pierre Rodet oversees the winemaking for Maison Jean Loron, with winemakers Rémi Vincent and Denis Poyet focussing on the expression of the terroir and of the Chardonnay and Gamay grapes in the various crus and vineyard sites spread across the two regions. Jean-Pierre is himself a winemaking veteran, with thirty years’ service for Loron.

The Region

The Beaujolais region sits in the central eastern region of France, with Burgundy to the north and the city of Lyon to the south. It shares similarities to Burgundy in terms of climate and it’s a long thin band of vineyards bordered by hills to the west and river to the east but here the similarity ends. The region is characterised by dark granite soils and split between the generic Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages wines, and the more serious Cru, of which there are ten.

Charcuterie Board

Cured meats match perfectly with light reds with a hint of sweetness, with the fresh, juicy fruit in the wine contrasting with the smoked/salty flavours in the meats.

Mediterranean Wild Mushroom & Lentil Salad

An easy to prepare mid-week supper on its own or as a side-dish with meat, this warm salad has plenty of gusty flavours which need a light silky red with soft tannins.

Salmon & Avocado Rice

An easy-peasy Japanese-style rice with creamy avocado and salmon, this will pair equally well with a fruity white or light red such as Beaujolais.
