Laurent Perrachon 2020 Beaujolais Villages "Terre de Loyse"
That wonderful French expression “vin de plaisir” might have been invented to describe this beauty. The explosive nose screams of Gamay, while the soft cushiony fruit with its characteristic tang and modest minerality reminds you that this is a wine from somewhere – in this case the two villages of La Chapelle de Guenchay and Lancié. An enticing introduction to the 2020 vintage at Perrachon, which was simply exceptional across the board.
