Château de Grandmont Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau 2021
RELEASE DATE: Thursday, 18th November
2021 - soft, fruity wines with lovely aromatics and freshness
The 2021 growing season and harvest brought along a whole range of challenges for the region’s producers and wine makers. The winter’s late frosts and Springtime hail storms resulted in seriously reduced yields; whilst the cooler summer months saw a late harvest, which at Château de Grandmont, began on 16th September. The long, slow ripening period meant that the style of this year’s wines is “classically Beaujolais”, with an enticing freshness, delicious forthright fruitiness and attractive floral and red fruit aromatics. These are wines with a natural alcohol of just over 12 degrees further adding to their vivacity and immediate appeal. The ripe, purple colour associated with Beaujolais was also guaranteed thanks to the deep-coloured skins and tight-knit bunches.
At Château de Grandmont we were lucky not suffer from the overall shortage of harvesters, caused by many other French regions starting picking at the same time as the Beaujolais. Luckily, we had organised a small band of Polish students who we shared with a neighbouring vineyard and they were able to harvest the phenolically ripe grapes under bright sunshine. The cooler, late summer temperatures also made wine making a lot less challenging than in 2020.
Despite the challenges of Brexit, we have managed to work out a way of importing this year’s new wine to our UK customers, ensuring that we can inject some sunshine and fun into a cold and dark mid-November. Santé!
