The 2022 Beaujolais Nouveau is reported to be outstanding, and we are so excited to have a parcel this year!
Beaujolais Nouveau is a celebration of the French harvest, with the wine being released on the 3rd Thursday of November. Now experiencing a resurgence in quality, these high quality and vibrant wines are a delight!
The Nouveau from Didier is as always, made without addition of SO2, expect trademark direct fruitiness and liveliness here.
Didier Desvignes’ family have been making wine in Beaujolais for over 100 years. His passion for all things wine and viticulture came at very young age, when he was 11 he used to accompany his father into the vineyard, occasionally pruning few vines. He vinified his first vintage a few years later and knew from that time he was going to take over the family estate. In 1981 he purchased his first piece of land in Morgon and today with his wife Denise, the Desvignes own 26 ha in Morgon and Fleurie, Moulin a Vent, Chiroubles and Brouilly.
The estate is now in full conversion towards Organic certification. Low intervention vinification, with very low use of SO2 reflect the quality and character of each parcel of grapes.
