From one of France’s great women winemakers, Marine Descombes! SERIOUS Gamay and wildly drinkable...don’t miss at our sensational price!

This isn’t your Mom’s Beaujolais! No, this region, just south of Burgundy, has re-invented itself in the last decade and the wines are simply lovely, intense and mouth-wateringly delicious. And because they are still a bit under the radar….crazy affordable!! Especially today!

Marine Descombe runs her family winery and bottling business at Vins Descombe in Brouilly. Started by her grandfather in 1905, Marine heads up all aspects of the winery. She has made remarkable progress with the domaine's 30 hectares under vine with the HVE sustainable farming certificate. Her Beaujolais-Villages is famed for its high-altitude hillside vineyards, planted on granite soils which leads to elegant, lovely and complex Gamay at an amazing price.

Cranberry, purple fruits, giant bunches of fresh flowers, perfume and incense! So much going on, with its fresh lip-smacking acidity, rich flavors and elegant feel --- weight-wise, it’s similar to Pinot Noir with much more exuberance.

ASTOUNDINGLY good at $13!! Wow again! While it lasts!
