From: Beaujolais, France
Taste: In the glass, this wine is a translucent and shiny pale pink with perfumes of tangy red fruits like wild strawberries, fresh cherries, and just-ripe raspberries, adorned with a spray of citrus that won't give you heartburn. The palate follows the aromas, leading to a mineral, slightly saline finish.
Pairing: This wine is the perfect pair with Martha Rose Shulman’s “luxurious summer risotto” recipe published in the NYT. Tomato and Basil Risotto.
Domaine Victor Sornin is run by Frédéric Sornin, who represents the 9th generation of winemakers in his family. Frédéric named the domaine after his son, Victor, who started to participate in the winemaking process at a young age and is still a teenager himself. In 2006, Frédéric decided to convert to organic farming on his 35 acres of Gamay vines in Beaujolais-Villages and Régnié, located near the lieu-dit “La Ronze” at the border between Régnié and Morgon appellations. Domaine Victor Sornin as also shifted operation towards biodynamic principles, and currently produces red wines, white wines, and rosés.
“My cellar and farmhouse are situated in Régnié among my 35 acres of vines,” he said. “The average of my vines is between 50 and 60 year old and my yield of production is very low.”
This wine represents a trend towards rosé production in Beaujolais: according to the Inter Beaujolais organization, production of rosés in the region has grown by 35% in the last four years. The Gamay grapes used to make these rosés are pressed either immediately or sometimes after a brief maceration period of a few hours.
