Real Beaujolais....

2010 Manoir du Carra Beaujolais-Villages Unfiltered...$13.99This 100% Gamay wine is produced from a selection of old vines (70 to 100 years old) with much smaller yields than most Beaujolais.    This "real" unfiltered Beaujolais is much better than the negociant producers.  In fact, Manoir du Carra sell off at least 25% of their juice that they feel is not good enough for their wine.   Ruby red color, black berry and cherry aromas. Ample in the mouth, very elegant and long lingering finish.   This is a perfect red to chill during these hot summer months.  Fresh and delicious.
