The Colonge family have been making wine in this part of the Beaujolais region since 1789. Lying in the heart of the northern, Cru, area of the region, they are based in the commune of Lancié. The estate comprises 37 hectares divided between 4 appellations: Fleurie, Brouilly, Beaujolais-Villages and Beaujolais.
Colonge’s Beaujolais-Villages is the epitome of what Beaujolais is all about. Light, fresh and full of juicy fruit.
A lovely deep crimson in appearance, the nose is bursting with crunchy red fruit and sweet spice, backed up by a touch of pear drop and strawberry. The palate emphasises the ripe red fruit flavours backed up by good acidity and silky tannins that give way to a finish of strawberry jam notes.
Try with roast chicken and new potatoes, haggis with neeps and tats, lightly fried smokey tofu with couscous, parsley, mint and tomatoes
