Domaine Manoir du Carra
The wines from Manoir du Carra are far from your cheap and cheerful house plonk often associated with the region. Opting to make wines of depth and elegance that are loyal to their terroir, it is clear from their range that each region of Beaujolais has a very distinct personality. Although all the wines drink incredibly well young, the Cru wines will also age very gracefully.
Critical acclaim is widespread. Indeed, in a review of over 300 Beaujolais for The Wine Advocate, the 2015 Moulin-à-Vent Les Burdelines received a score of 93 points. With 90+ points on all wines tasted in the review by Antonio Galloni at Vinous.com, it is clear that we have a producer sitting at the forefront of quality in the region.

Region / Producer
“The 2016 Beaujolais Villages Unfiltered saw half the fruit destemmed and the other half going through carbonic maceration. It has a joyful bouquet of red cherries and blackcurrant while the palate is ripe and candied, fresh in the mouth with a crisp finish.” -Neal Martin
“Lurid ruby-red. Bright, sharply defined red fruit and floral scents are sharpened by a mineral nuance that builds with aeration. Shows very good clarity and bite on the palate, offering subtly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that deepen on the back half. Fine-grained tannins shape the finish, which lingers with very good, spicy tenacity.” - 90 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com
