Nathalie Banes Mammouth 2018
We love Beaujolais for its hugely varied expressions of light and juicy carbonic fun, but Nathalie Banes is taking things in a different direction. She works in Oignt, a village below the ten grand crus. This wine is in a style more structured and precise than our typical carefree Beaujolais, as Nathalie opted to purposefully integrate more Burgundian methods in to her winemaking. This rosé has a silky elegance that makes one want to pay a little more attention to the watermelon and strawberry flavors that set the tone for a strong, mineral finish. We wouldn’t blame you if you drank this on its own to avoid interrupting its subtle style.
