In the 16th century Sir Francis de Nanton, a member of an illustrious French noble family, was the owner the Tower of Tanay, for which Nanton’s Beaujolais is named.  The grapes are harvested by hand in the village of Saint Jean d’Ardières, north of the Beaujolais region and close to Villié Morgon, and matured in temperature controlled vats to keep the fruity character from vinification to bottling. Beaujolais Cuvée de Tanay is teasing, cheerful, light, fruity and smooth, and a joy on the tongue and the palate. It will add a note of cheerfulness any hour of the day.
