Granger Le Bouteau Beaujolais Villages 2014 (750ml)

The structure of this Gamay is a bit surprising; this is not a fruit forward simple table wine. This bottling does not go through carbonic maceration, but does include some whole-clusters, resulting in some soft tannins. This results in a wine that is more restrained than flashy, which is true to the house style. This single-vineyard Beaujolais is singing right now, with all its elements in harmony. Classic true Gamay bouquet, dark fruited with a gamy, wild berry mien, solid on the palate yet light on its feet. This is serious stuff that proves even Beaujolais Villages can be vinified for the long haul; a wine of structure rather than ease.

The Domaine Pascal Granger is located in the hamlet of Les Poupets, within the village of Julienas, in the heart of the finest sector of the Beaujolais district. This estate has been in the Granger family for over two hundred years, dating to Napoleonic times, and has passed from father to son continually. The domaine encompasses 14 hectares with vineyard holdings in the home village of Julienas and extending through the neighboring villages of Jullie, Chenas, La Chapelle de Guinchay and Leynes. All harvesting is done manually and treatments in the vineyards are minimal with weed-growth tolerated between the vines.

Le Bouteau is an old vine vineyard in Leynes, the northernmost village in the Beaujolais district. This wine, due to its substantial structure, undergoes a longer cuvaison and an extended elevage. It possesses a breadth of flavors (red fruits and wild berries) and wealth of backbone.
