2017 Beaujolais blanc, Beaujolais Villages

The Beaujolais blanc struts nonchelantly on the wrong side of the tracks and takes pleasure in doing so. Devilishly fresh with white flowers and a peachy nose, its a wine that dares to be different. To be drunk within 3 years this wine urges you to use as an appetitive or with with fish in sauce.
