Domaine Joseph Burrier, Juliénas Beauvernay, Burgundy, France 2020
(at Decanter Tasting Suite, London, 23 Mar 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
Available later this month, this is classic Beaujolais, slightly darker, fuller flavoured and plusher-textured than it would have been in a cooler vintage (the 2020 growing season was warm and dry). It was fermented with 50% whole bunches, and aged for 10 months in Austrian vats. Enjoy the vibrant dark red fruit with steak frites.
