Winemaking - The quality of François’ wines can be attributed to his painstakingly selective approach when purchasing grapes. Clusters are carefully inspected during veraison and harvest to ensure they are healthy enough to produce wine without the use of additives. Vinification and élevage take place in his ancient cellar in Savigny-Lès-Beaune and is non-interventionist in every respect: no pumpovers, no filtration, and no sulphur additions.
What it tastes like - The Cuvée des Beaux Jours is an excellent value for money Beaujolais from François de Nicolay’s negociant project. It has a juicy palate with charming notes of cassis, kirsch and peonies.
