Lafarge-Vial are a small, family-owned winery in the Beaujolais and are focusing on producing organic, biodynamic wines. Joie de Palais is vinted from 100% Gamay off 60 year old vines. This is their premium release and carries gorgeous dark fruit flavours and soft, velvety tannins. A very special wine.
The distributor writes "A brand new expression for Lafarge-Vial from 60 year old vines planted on steep slopes that require ploughing by horse. Frédéric Lafarge alludes to this being their "Premier Cru Fleurie". Beautiful ripe dark fruits; blackberry, cassis. Smooth, rounded and velvety with structured tannins and a lovely freshness that cuts through the richness, long finish."
