Fleurie Gamay 2012

Alder Yarrow
9.3

Sophisticated soft velvet sings a beautiful song. Ripe berries, a touch of herbs and leather, and a lovely dried floral high note that has a sour cherry tang made this a stunner of a wine. This is ultra-orthodox Beaujolais in the Chauvet style, whole bunch, carbonic maceration in cement, aged in neutral oak and not a thing added, especially not any sulfur. Apparently some bottles are great and others, well… we got a great one. — a month ago

Les Santenots Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Complex aroma. Tannic and spicy. Very special. It should wait for years. Initially strong, but 2 hours, it showed Pinot characteristic like fresh plum flavor etc. complexity different. 2018 @2650, domaine, 210108 — 5 months ago

Le Printemps Fleurie Gamay 2018

A little springtime flower patch poking through the wintry weather tonight. Blue and red, musky, floral, crunchy and tart. Not heavy or overripe like other ‘18s I’ve had; drinks like a fleurie. You might call it a...wait for it...snow fleurie. 😎 Ok I apologize — 4 months ago

Vieilles Vignes Fleurie Gamay 2011

Mag. So lifted and ethereal—strawberries, soil and sous bois glide across the palate. Not sure if it’s the producer or just the temps a’ changin’ but this is simply in a different register from most Beaujolais today — 3 months ago

I always try to buy Cru Beaujolais in mag! It's the best way to ensure I can neglect the bottle for many years.

@Severn Goodwin Yes good call—and so perfect for the thanksgiving (or in this case Passover) table
