For benchmark Beaujolais full of ripe fruit flavours and juicy freshness, who better to ask than 14th generation Beaujolais winegrower Dominique Piron? Dominique runs one of the leading estates in Morgon with a family history stretching back to 1590. His ancestor Philibert Bailly was among the first to ship Beaujolais to Paris via canal boat, helping put Beaujolais firmly on fine wine lovers’ radar. Today, Dominique is at the front of a movement of young winemakers producing top quality Beaujolais and is President of Inter-Beaujolais, the trade body for Beaujolais wine producers.

Tasting note:With lush, pure red berry and cherry fruit typical of great Beaujolais, it will be one of the most versatile reds in your wine rack.
