When I first met Thibaud Baudin in Beaujolais back in January, he told me of a friend up in Macon doing ‘amazing things’ with Gamay and Chardonnay.

This was exactly what customers wanted more of at the time, so I shuffled around my itinerary to make sure I could see Guillaume for myself.

And I’m so glad I did - and I managed to come away with a small order of his best wines. It’s who you know and all that...

This is Guillaume’s top red, made from a special old vineyard that his grandfather planted in 1926. The vineyard is based on the limestone soils you’d more often find in Burgundy, than the granite you mostly find in Beaujolais. The wine is made in a Burgundian style, with open-top fermentation and aged for 17 months in neutral oak barrels.

So if you like Burgundy Pinot, you should love this.

It's Beaujolais, Jim, but not as we know it!
Delicious wine. I had one glass over my usual ration last night but no regrets.
