This is one of our favorite bottles to see in the shop, year after year. It is everything you look for in a Beaujolais Gamay, with notes of ripe cherries, subtle licorice and green herbs. It has a medium body, with a tannin that doesn't over assert itself or get too pushy.
Domaine de la Prébende produces a deeply mineral Beaujolais from a predominantly clay and limestone terroir, a rarity in a region dominated by granite soils.
The Prébende Beaujolais cuvée, “Anna Asmaquer,” is named for Ghislaine's great grandmother, who married Jules Dupeuble in 1919. The family wanted to add her name to the label because it was Anna who managed the vineyards and winemaking—she is the true source of inspiration for what has become Domaine de la Prébende today.
