100% Gamay. Jean Paul Brun uses fruit from his home estate in Charnay in southern Beaujolais as well as from cru sites in the north for this fresh, bright, medium-bodied direct-press rosé. After brief aging in concrete vat, the wine is bottled in clear glass to stunning visual effect.

"Light orange-pink. Aromas of ripe red berries, blood orange and succulent flowers carry a subtle mineral topnote. Chewy and focused in the mouth, offering ripe strawberry, candied rose and musky rhubarb flavors that put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity. The berry and mineral notes linger very nicely on the finish, which is sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. "
