While Beaujolais is known for red wines, this 100% Chardonnay is a great alternative to White Burgundy displaying a lovely balance between freshness and roundness and offering amazing value for money.
This rare white wine Beaujolais from small producer Manoir du Carra is a wine of depth and elegance that’s loyal to its terroir, Manoir du Carra has been producing wines in Beaujolais since 1850. The estate’s long history has been overseen by the Sambadier family, with the 5th generation currently presiding over the estate.
Beaujolais, south of the Mâcon region, is of course famous for light reds made from Gamay, but about 1% are white wines made from Chardonnay. This wine comes from a single vineyard, in the village of Cogny, called ‘Le Soly’, which has the limestone soil that is so closely associated with white Burgundy
100% Chardonnay, matured on its lees for 5 months, but with no use of wood.
