2016 Ça Roule? Beaujolais

Ça roule? is the French way of saying “How are you doing?” and it’s the perfect name for this fun and flirty wine. Made from 100% Gamay Noir, this Beaujolais is easygoing and easy to love, with enticing aromas of red cherry and candied violet that draw you in, followed by bright flavors of alpine strawberry and plum on the palate. Lovely on its own, this pleasant red is even better with a platter of salumi and cheese. After a few sips, you’ll be doing just fine.

Most people think Champagne can only be made of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. But Arbane, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris can be used as well – yet they comprise less than .05% of all grapevines in the region.
