cherished cherries / royal flush / in the mood
Learning curves are often steep and treacherous, like the village of Souzon where this fruit was grown. But this 2022 Beaujolais Gamay floats to the top of the class. Floral, wispy, light and airy, like your boyfriend’s facial hair. This Gamay is unfussed and without a blemish- remember darling, thinking gives you wrinkles! It’s kind of like the liquid equivalent of Timothee Chalamet’s boyish looks, pairs well with discounted grocery store flowers on February 15th.
American by birth, Santini Collective leader Christopher Santini, grew up spending his summers in France, and took part in his first harvest in Provence before he was legal drinking age in his home country. Part of the larger Auxey Collective, the Santini Collective is a product of Christopher & his brothers- turns out blood is about as thick as grape juice. Taking over a winery that's over 100 years old, Santini sources organic fruit from unusual Burgundian appellations and utilises minimal sulphur in the final product.
