Durdilly Beaujolais Les Grandes Coasses 2015
Domaine Paul Durdilly is a small father and son team with some of the highest vineyards in the Beaujolais appellation. Paul’s finest parcels have a higher proportion of granite and limestone than the run of the mill Beaujolais Nouveau; the marriage of this unique soil combined with the high altitude of the vineyards results in a finessed and serious Beaujolais Nouveau.
Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are much lower in production than the drink-it-now.
