Beaujolais en Besset: Domaine de Fa 2018
The Graillot family recently acquired 5 hectares of vines in the cru of Saint Amour (in the climat of Côte de Besset) from which this charming, juicy Beaujolais is produced - alongside a full St-Amour.
The Graillot family have harboured an oenological interest in Beaujolais, as well as a family home there, for some time. They, like several others, see a region which has real potential and that is currently undervalued. We look forward to seeing what these forward-thinking winemakers can produce as this project develops.
