Karim Vionnet

Beaujolais Villages 2020


“Sex, Rock & Gamay,” a phrase which unintentionally makes a much larger statement about its wearer -- Karim exudes an unapologetic, forthright, carefree spirit which manifests itself in various ways, including his wine. And boy, let us tell you, this Gamay rocks. One of the darker and more serious Gamays we've tried, it's loaded with juicy boysenberry, bruised blackberry, and tart plum fruitiness... all tied together with herbal and spicy notes.

We love it with… 🍔🍛🧀

Type: Red
Vintage: 2020
Size: 750 mL
ABV: 13%
Grape: 100% Gamay
Region: Beaujolais Villages, France
Vinification: Farmed organically/biodynamically, hand-harvested. Karim utilizes full carbonic maceration in fermentation. No oak on this one. To ensure that his wines can be safely made with only a minimum amount of added sulphur, Karim keeps his tanks airtight during fermentation and maturation, only releasing the carbon dioxide moments before bottling. He feels that this, coupled with careful natural temperature control, preserves the fruit and purity of his Gamay grapes.
