Thierry Ledain Beaujolais Nouveau "Evasion" 2022 (organic)
* Available online starting November 16 *
This Gamay from clay-granite soils offers beautiful red fruit aromas dominated by blackcurrant and strawberry.
Created in 2007, at a time when many Beaujolais winegrowers were abandoning the hillsides or thinking of quitting, Domaine de Rochefolle was built up piece by piece, parcel by parcel by its current owners, Thierry Ledain and Fernanda Galante. Born in Libourne, Thierry started with just 7 hectares; his property now covers 70 hectares, with a carefully crafted diversity of terroirs. Some of the grapes are sent to a cooperative cellar, while the best are vinified and bottled at the estate. Thierry Ledain is HVE (High Environmental Value) certified since 2018. The "Rochefolle" side of the winery is certified organic since 2018.
