Dominique Piron Beaujolais Rose
Very small amounts of Rose come out of Beaujolais. Made entirely from the Gamay grape variety it is light and refreshing. The region is one of the few regions of the world which concentrates almost exclusively on a single variety. Carbonic maceration has become the most widely used method for making these wines. Using whole bunches in the ferment causes fermentation to occur with the berry at a cellular level. The resulting wine is fruity with minimal tannins and in the case of this wine, minimal colour. Dominique Piron’s family have been making wine in the region for 14 generations. He seeks to make interesting wines from his vineyards in the hills.
