A Beaujolais that is fresh and fruit-forward. One of our favorite reds we tasted this year. Traditionally paired with Thanksgiving Day turkey but flexible enough for anything else on the menu.

This cuvee is an assemblage of five parcels (average 60 years old) that Domaine Cheveau recently acquired (2015) from their uncle. Like the “Champs Grillés”, the grapes are hand-harvested and sorted before being de-stemmed. After a cold maceration of three to four days and a two-week cuviason, the wine spends 8 months in stainless steel before bottling. The “Villa Violette” is comparable to the “Champs Grillés” with deep color and structure, explosive fresh fruit, and firm tannins; yet it does present a bit fresher and more youthful on the palate. Approximately 125 cases per annum are available for the US market.
