This is a fresh and cool wine from the highest of the Beaujolais cru villages. Produced by Céline and Nicolas Hirsch, originally from Alsace, the wine is bright with red cherries and currants. It has some tannins that firm up the structure, giving it shape and the possibility of aging. Drink now and until 2020.
