Few words about this wine

A charming red wine from Beaujolais, north of Lyon, a city best known for its simple and high-quality cuisine. It is always a great choice to pair the wine from this region with food.

Why I like this wine

La Famille K l’Héritière is a pure expression of the fruit, you can easily notice it when you sample its fragrance from the glass: lots of red berries as raspberry, strawberry and cranberry. The wine is pleasant in the mouth, it shows juiciness, and red berries driven acidity which is still very present as 2019 is the latest vintage.

Why I like this wine

It’s generous and round in the mouth, the wine body has a good structure, elegant tannin and lovely acidity; you can find back the same aromas of black cherry, blackberry, with an interesting note of herbal bitterness and a very long finish.

La Famille K

La Famille K is a family’s story, composed of Marianne, Benoit, Jeanne and Agathe. 

They used to be white collar workers, obviously stressed out, who decided to leave this crazy city life to work passionately and devoutly on the land of Beaujolais. 

This is full of desire and passion, that they took over a 12ha vineyard in early 2018 to live their vision: producing unpretentious wines of Beaujolais to demonstrate that wine can be good and accessible to everyone.

They are fashionably against chemical pesticides (converting to organic farming, certified sustainable agriculture) and for lower sulfites dosage, just enough to protect their wine.
