The Pierres Dorées, or golden stones, region of Beaujolais is a special place due to the bedrock of golden limestone (hence the name). The building glowing in the sunshine remind you of Tuscany, whilst the terroir is similar to some of the top appellations of Burgundy.

Kevin and Carole from Famille Descombe harvested these grapes from the commune of Porte des Pierres Dorées. Their vineyards are all worked organically and their winemaking takes a minimal intervention approach. Part of the vinification was done in concrete eggs which has given this wine a luscious, textural mouthfeel.

The colour is golden yellow. The nose is expressive with white flowers and orchard fruits. This follows through to the palate which has touches of green apple, citrus fruit and an amazing tension. If you have the patience, this would improve if cellared for up to five years.

Pair this with vegetable curry or a slow cooked white pork ragu,

Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.
