Description: Domaine du Clos du Fief is a rare 4th generation Cru estate in Juliénas and Julié, based at the far Northwest sector of Beaujolais. The hamlet of Jullié, where this Nouveau calls home, is comprised of granite-rich soil and mimics its neighbor, Julienas. A soft and supple version, with a spicy thread winding through the bright black raspberry, delicate wild herb, pomegranate and smoky notes. Well-balanced and perfect with food.
Food pairings: Roasted Chicken, turkey, game birds, grilled salmon, tuna, goat cheese, etc.
