The Wine

"This is a very popular wine for good reason, it is very very hard to stop drinking it  - the person depicted on the label has got the drinking position just about right! 

This again has textbook Beaujolais aromas of blueberries, vine sap, earth, flowers and iodine. Whistle clean, bright and uplifting this is light to medium-bodied and wonderfully pure. The juicy ripe fruit is laced with slate and stems that push the flavours long in the mouth. Fluid and vibrant acidity keeps things fresh and adds a tang to the finish that keeps calling you back for another sip. This 2020 is deeper and darker than usual but still crackling juicy and fresh - again brilliant! " Andrew Guard

About the Wine Maker

Kewin - or Kéké to his mates - has Beaujolais in his blood. The son of Georges Descombes, close mate and occasional, unofficial fifth member of Kermit Lynch's famous “Gang of Four” of Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, Jean Foillard & Guy Breton, it was almost inevitable that Kéké would follow a similar path.

His wines have all the pretty poise, acid and elegance you’d expect from such heritage, and a refinement, structure and confidence that belies his age. Farming is organic, intervention is minimally minimal. Still just in his twenties, Kéké is unambiguously one of the reinvigorated Beaujolais region’s brightest young talents.
