Côte De Brouilly, Beaujolais

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2017

Stewed fruit, raisin and molasses on the nose, picking up sweetness on the palate with clove, earth, plum jam and prominent tannins. Lacks the fresh-fruited Beaujolais profile I prefer, but still impressive. — 21 days ago

Brouilly Gamay 2017

The apple doesn’t fall far. Transparent ruby color. Bright berry aromatics. Light & nimble on the palate with rich red fruit & smoky/savory character on the finish. Great acid & quite fresh. Beautiful stuff. — 24 days ago

I haven't opened the 17 yet, likely this Fall, good to know it's doing great. 👍

Didn’t know there were two Foillards! 😍

Georges Descombes

Vieilles Vignes Brouilly Gamay 2015

From a hot vintage comes a balanced Brouilly from Descombes in magnum. Complex aromas with lots of raspberries, a hint of forest floor emerging as some time passes. The fruit profile is among the lighter side of the Beaujolais 2015 that I have tried. Good acidity and medium tannins. A serious wine, though not super chuggable nor structured enough to be a great food partner. But pretty enjoyable as it is. — 22 days ago

Famille Geoffray Côte de Brouilly Gamay

Cherry, herbal, light spice, hint of bubblegum. Very tart, light smoke and herbal finish, light banana and florals. Great flavor, love the tartness, good complexity and wild floral bitterness, wonderful gamay! — 5 months ago

"Reverdon" Brouilly Gamay 2017

Dark cherry, ripe watermelon. Subtle minerality. Good acid, medium tannins, well balanced. Silky. Great value. — 2 days ago

Jean Foillard

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

Telltale (but under control) barnyard funk livens the tangy red fruit and crushed granite on the nose. Cleaner in the mouth, with great intensity but very lively acid balance. Lip-smackingly good. — 7 hours ago

Domaine de Javerniere Morgon Gamay Noir 2016

This is the Côte du Py cru parcel, not listed in the description. Another outstanding vintage, perhaps even outdoing the 2015. About everything you would expect from a top cru-level Morgon, but at a killer price point. — 11 hours ago

Domaine Mee Godard

Morgon Côte Du Py Gamay 2018

Also a winner. More structure, more chewy, more intensely herbal than the Corcelette. But same refined balance of fruit and finesse. — 20 days ago

These sound amazing. Never tried this producer but from what I’ve read she’s making some very special wine. Going to have to track some bottles down.
