much better the next day. Really needs a good decantation to give the best of its juice. Magnificent association between the Gamay (light fruity) and a vinification carried on structure, density. Aging in oak casks brings a plus. The final is majestic. At once delicate and affirmed. I just love it ! — 4 days ago
I saw where someone else described this years’ Nouveau as “bitter and tart” so I was worried because I really enjoy this wine with my Thanksgiving meal. I found it to be as expected; fruity and smooth. Thank goodness we all have different palates! Happy Thanksgiving to all my Delectable friends!! 🍷🍂🍽🦃 — 16 days ago
This delicious Beaujolais-Nouveau (from vines that are up to 85 years old) brims with intense dark berry, floral and spice notes. Mineral overtones add urgency and back end cut to round things out in style. $18.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019) — 5 days ago
Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.
Nose has wood smoke, crushed rocks, deep purple fruits are very generous, ripe blackberry and plum are prominent.
Palate has nice depth, sweet blackberry, black cherry, smoked ripe plum, confectionery sugar, hints of mild oak with a medium-long finish. Perfect entry to the world.
Debut commercial vintage from a son of one of the Masters of Beaujolais, at long last, Alex Foillard is bringing his wines to the world. Starting with an epic hail vintage, supply was quite limited for much of the North. Luckily Bouilly and Côte de Brouilly had minimal damage. For those in the know, 2016 Burgundy's will be wines for the ages. — 17 days ago
Effusive and beguiling black fruit... ripe plums, cassis, bramble fruit, jam and charcoal. Silky, full bodied bojo with a hint of licorice on the palate. Maybe the best quality/price ratio wine I know? Coudert is the best. Missing a touch of acidity but 2018 seems like a great vintage nonetheless. — 15 days ago
A nice Beaujolais from a vintage that I don’t usually love compared to 2014/2016. Definitely better with an hour or so in a decanter to let the tannins integrate a bit more. Dark purple in the glass - darker than expected. Nice cherry aromas. Still could resolve a bit more on the finish but with a slight chill is nice. — 17 days ago
