Elisa Guerin Moulin a Vent La Vigne de mon Pere 2020

Elisa Guerin is making waves with her luscious, party-ready Beaujolais Villages and more sophisticated, age-able cuvées. Bold, spirited, and unwavering in her commitment to the principles that elevated Beaujolais to prominence, Elisa embraces minimal intervention in both the vineyard and cellar. She’s slowly converting her family estate to organics and has even more sustainability projects in mind. She’s also begun fermenting with native yeasts in the cellars, tying herself firmly to the traditions established by the Gang of Four.

This is a seriously intense Beaujolais. Burgundy lovers might note a familiar character, a certain musicality in the balance of muscle and refinement. It’s floral and intense, with deep dark fruits and veins of iron-infused minerality. Age it — if you can resist the temptation.
