AOC Fleurie: Domaine de Fa 2016

"A juicy yet complex and light-bodied red, with mouthwatering acidity accentuating the steeped cherry, raspberry tea and orange zest flavors. Accents of wild herb and mineral echo on the lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2024. 600 cases made. 91/100."
Gillian Sciaretta - Wine Spectator.

Tasting Notes
The esteemed Graillot family have long-harboured an oenological interest in Beaujolais, as well as a family home there and recently acquired 8 hectares of Beaujolais in the crus of Saint Amour (in the climat of Côte de Besset) and Fleurie, that they named Domaine de Fa. They, like several others, see a region which has real potential and that is currently undervalued.
