After realizing I’d never had a Beaujolais bottle before, I decided to find a top quality one to give a try. This is an “old vine” version from a very reputable producer.

Reddish purple in the glass but a bit translucent. Very candied and floral on the nose! Candied plum, orange zest, and cherry jolly rancher too. A wonderful entry and mid palate with notes of granite, cherry gummies, potpourri and an herbal note...maybe oregano? Very low acidity, and short finish. A fun wine to try and use as a benchmark/standard.

Vieilles Vignes Corcelette Morgon Gamay 2011

Extremely consistent wine, so very similar to my previous note. Very bright with massive strawberry flavor. Some nice spice on the finish. — 10 days ago

Fleurie Gamay 2015

The king 👑 2015 isn't my favourite bojo vintage but Metras' Fleurie easily breaks this. The energy! While there's definitely ripeness in the fruit, it's bright, crunchy, and saline. All that I love of Bojo 😍 — 15 hours ago

Been a minute since I had this. Nose is funky and reductive. Some mint, some leather but big time cheesy funk. As air enters the equation this becomes more bramble, granite infused and spicey. Palate is elegant and super raspberry and cranberry fruited with nice drying but ripe tannins. Good freshness. Very juicy and balanced. — 6 days ago

Nose was amazing - violets and forest floor. Silky resolved tannin. I need to age more Beaujolais... — 8 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

Beautiful delicately balanced wine with a deep layered bouquet that unfolds over hours. Raspberry jam, violet candy, morello cherries, wet moss and stones, herbal with some brine and dill. Supply and textured on the palate. Balanced acidity; gentle tannins. This is really fine cru Beaujolais in a good balanced vintage. Expensive but worth it. — 3 hours ago

Very natural and 2015 nose. Hazelnut, granite, red fruits, floral, violets, very high toned and very pungent. Palate has no shortage of fruit, and is very fresh and energetic. Good power and satiating fruit. Excellent. — 6 days ago

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2017

To be honest, I actually prefer the Chenas I had earlier this year in Japan... But in the same spirit, this was super glou-glou. Bright, fresh, juicy, light, and super expressive. Only issue I have is the perception of RS. Could be the super sweet fruit though... — 9 days ago

Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau Gamay 2018

The wine is medium-dark and smells earthy, full of minerals, almost like dirt with a rusty nail stuck in it. Good earth, though. The palate shows plums and dark berries with a hefty dose of those fabulous minerals. Acidity is fresh but not overpowering, while the tannins are firm enough to handle a pork chop, if you like. The finish stays awhile and is somewhat flinty. — 17 days ago
