Miss Vicky Wine
Vicky is a true one-woman powerhouse who works constantly to broaden her own horizons and those of the wine industry around her, whilst also making some of the best Beaujolais we’ve had the pleasure of tasting in recent times. However, she is focused on more than just production as she writes regularly on French wine in national publications, organises events to encourage collaboration in the industry and travels the country on tasting tours.
Sustainability and the environment are at the heart of Vicky’s ethos, and her new canned format dramatically reduces impact on the world around us without any compromise on taste or quality whilst also being practical and lightweight. We are very proud to represent Vicky and her wonderful wines.
Ô Joie Fleurie (Can)
‘Ô Joie’ translates, quite literally and simply, to ‘oh joy!’ – and this delightful canned Fleurie is certainly the wine to make you jump with joy. Made from 100% handpicked Gamay from granite soils in Vicky’s own vineyards, this is a classic crunchy, fruity Beaujolais with abundant red raspberry and strawberry fruit with an elegant touch of violet.
Ô Joie Fleurie (Bottle)
The Ô Joie Fleurie in bottle is, just the same as its canned cousin, a thing of real joy! A young, pure, 100% Gamay wine made from hand-harvested grapes from Vicky’s home vineyards; grapes from several plots are blended and spend a short time in 400l oak barrels before bottling. The result is quintessential Cru Beaujolais; exuberant, buoyant, juicy red fruit flavours of strawberry and raspberry, well-integrated light oak spice and velvety tannins.
Domaine Martin ‘Ocean’ Muscadet
Along with the Ô Joie Fleurie, this excellent Muscadet is the first AOC wine in a can to be launched in the UK. This white is the result of a partnership between Vicky and her friend Dominique Martin, a fourth-generation winemaker from the Loire Valley’s famous Muscadet Sèvre et Maine AOC region. Melon Blanc grapes are given freshness and characteristic acidity by the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean, and create a zingy, zesty white wine which translates perfectly into a canned format.
