Definitely recommend a several hour decant (or even better, several more years). Beautiful deep purple color in the glass. A hint of those carbonic notes on the palate but overall this is really very good with deep red berry fruit and a persistent refreshing finish with great acid. Nice pairing with cheeseburgers. — 6 hours ago
Gave this around an hour of air. The nose is fragrant & expressive. Flowers & spices accent the fruit. The palate is a bit more layered & complex than the Delys from the same vintage. Fruit, spice & a hint of smoke. Moderate grip on the end. This is showing very well. — 5 days ago
The third bottle, still as delicious, of this Beaujolais with southern accents. If he was blind he could easily call Saint-Joseph, for example. The crunchiness of the typical gamay fruit is associated here with a rather dense general structure with a material of black fruit and roasted or toasted notes. 2015 is awesome 👍 — 13 days ago
Bright fruit on the nose. A very beautiful color of purple. In the mouth a lot of crunchy red fruits, we detect a little note of banana. The acidity is a little too strong for my taste at this point. It flows quickly and the bottle quickly ends, but it left me wanting more...

Gave this about 45 minutes of air. The nose was all power. Big dark cherry & strawberry fruit aromatics. More power on the palate. Rich dark fruit with more concentration than expected. Tannins are chalky with a good grip. This is showing well, and is a genuine pleasure to drink. Not terribly complex at this point, but not sure if I’d be asking for that from this wine. — 11 days ago
In a great place. Voluptuous nose. Deep cherry, some earth, some feral, so alluring, huge mint and menthol, so so deep. What a nose. A knockout. Palate is so juicy and energetic. Deep and luscious with insane freshness and zowie purity. Clean and palate staining with atrocious length. Bravo. — 9 days ago
Gorgeous nose. Floral, soft, orange rind, sour cherry, mid season cherry, berry fruit, so vivid, sweet cherries, evocative and expansive, 14’s in a great spot. Tons of earth and mineral. Palate is elegant and pretty. Sappy and pure with nice force on the backend. Really lovely. The most Volnay of the Lafarge-Vial wines but also classically Chiroubles. Awesome. — 8 days ago
