When it comes to great Beaujolais, few do it better than Julie Balagny. This remarkable wine from a vineyard over one hundred years old in Moulin-à-Vent. It is one of the highest in the appellation, at a similar altitude to Fleurie and likewise its soils of decomposed pink granite and quartz mirror its neighbour, rather than the heavier soils we expect to find in Moulin. As such this is a wine that in both style and spirit is closer to a great Fleurie. The purity here is simply stunning. Gamay of real elegance and finesse.
