2016 Beaujolais

Domaine des Marrans

Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay 2016

2016 Burgundy... Do I need to say more? It's slamming good!

Nose is a saline solution with sweet green apple and light oyster shell.
Palate is incredible balanced acidity with Anjou pear and this ever lingering saline finish.

For certain, one of the best BoJo blancs to ever grace my glass!

Happy Valentine's Day 2019 to all.

24hr Update: Nose has subsided slightly, but the palate is going strong and picking up minor red fruit (strawberry) notes. I tend to pick up those red notes only in Chardonnay from Beaujolais, after about a day or two after opening, interesting.

Domaine Pignard Beaujolais Gamay 2016

Light red and clear and clean. Nose has some muted floral and herbaceous notes but not much else. Light bodied , medium + acidity. Pretty much non distinct. This bottle was left over from Turkey dinner. Should have drank it then, perhaps.

Fleurie Gamay 2016

Candy fudgy ju jube aromas. Some animale feral notes - touch of Brett? Quite dense in colour for a Fleurie. In summary an easy drinking light red for summer. — 18 days ago

First time trying the eponym. Way more open in its youth even than the other foillard wines and that is saying a lot! Juice 🥤 — 19 days ago

l’Alchemiste Fleurie Gamay 2016

Delicious lighter weight Bojo, with flavors of its pink granite vineyard soils. Bright acidity, no filtration, native yeasts... reminds me of some of the better “natural” wines I’ve tasted. SommSelect — 14 days ago
