Medium ruby hue with a mild haze. Fragrant on the nose and palate with ripe cherry, strawberry, kirsch, and banana primary notes alongside secondary notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, also saddle leather, moss, and barnyard / Brett. Medium body, alcohol, and acidity. Soft tannins. Medium finish. Lovely, fruit-forward Beaujolais Cru with good complexity.

Always love the earthy, woodsy, crushed berries, stems and all, bouquets. Always reminds me of being outside in a forest, cool air drifting through trees, the hope of a hidden stream through an unnamed bend in the path.
Deep and dark, rich and jammy. This is a rare treat like truffle pizza or watching a marathon of your favorite movie series (Rush Hour, Die Hard, Fast & The Furious, The Godfather, take your pick).
Cornucopia of fruits, but I really love the noir licorice and plum notes right at the end. Harmonize with spice and acidity and you’ve got a winner. Class and drinkability. — 8 days ago

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.
Bordeaux shaped bottles. Long elevage. Certified biodynamics.
This wine is all about the greatness of the fruit. So ripe and fragrant. Healthy vines and optimal harvesting. Wine doesn't overwhelm with variety of aromas and flavours but strikes with its depth and precision. Concentration of fruit wrapped in violets. — 2 days ago
It takes at least 3/4 hours for it to open. It then offers incredible freshness, rich and deep tannins, supported by an incredible aromatic range: strawberry, redcurrant, rose jam, dried peony, pot pourri. Undergrowth, musk, leather, truffle, morello cherry, etc. You could think of a Burgundian Pinot. Delicious — 3 days ago
More of that catnip. A nuanced and developed version of Gamay that just dances on the palate. Fruit doing a tango with tannin, which showed up a bit late to the party because it was doing a foxtrot with the acidity in the hallway. Brilliant juice. — 3 days ago
Dark ruby purple in the glass. Inviting nose and palate of black cranberry, blackberry, and juicy licorice. Medium full body. Medium tannins (only on the finish). A cru Beaujolais that will appeal to newbies and snobs alike. Just enough fruit. Just enough “stuff.” Drink now through 2022. — 14 days ago
