Clos des vignes du Maynes

Big Trouble in Little Chenas Beaujolais Gamay 2016

Rebellious teen spirit shows where Julian Guilot wants to take Clos des Vignes du Maynes, what many believe is the oldest organically farmed winery in France. Stands out visually from its family portrait, but extremely good Gamay. Tight high pitched perfumed red fruit and flowers. High acid and crushed rocks. Awesome. — 2 days ago

Beaujolais Nouveau Gamay 2019

Nose has cut cherry, crushed blackberry and (faint) banana.

Palate has black cherry, red currant, ripe blackberry and medium tannins.

This is certainly an oddity of the Nouveau style, some weight and complexity to the palate, considerable color extraction shows a very dark ruby color in the glass. Blindly tasting, I might not guess it is what it is... 2019 looks to be a decent vintage for Drouhin.

This may be the best Nouveau I can recall in many years of tasting, wow!

I drank this too young ... Unfortunately I don’t yet have proper wine storage in my new primary residence in Miami.

Two of the very best dishes we had in recent memory. Food a 9.8. Wine pairing a 10.

Absolutely the best @Plate&Bottle Dinner we attended. Spectacular evening.

Thanks to Chef Hedy who talents in the kitchen need to experienced by all. We’ve been to many Michelin stared restaurants all over the world and not had food as delicious as Hedy’s.

Mâcon-Pierreclos Gamay 2017

Great example of how good a non-cru Beaujolais can be. Vibrant, fruity, balanced acidity, and after a few hours, opened up beautifully. More please! — 6 days ago

Cuvée Unique Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2004

16 year old beaujoulais! this was shy in the first 30 mins after popping the cork but afterwards it was a different story. the aged red fruit is just picture perfect and a lot of savory and floral notes here. definitely a “drink now” bottle in a really prime drinking window. happy to see what an old soul Morgon tastes like, it’s. a beauty — 8 days ago

Cuvée La Chapelle Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2018

9.4

A great La Chapelle. Blueberry, smoke, spice, dark cherries, loads of earth and mineral. Spicey granite. Lovely floral top note as well. Palate is ripe and so so juicy, incredible freshness and purity and shockingly mineral. The fruit is in background. Has a red Riesling quality to it this year. Fruit is more fruit skin than flesh. Cherry, blueberry, cassis and super concentrated but so nimble. Absolutely delicious. Long mineral finish with floral and fruit sneaking in as it airs. Great stuff. — 12 days ago

Cuvée du Chaos Fleurie Gamay 2018

Not so chaotic, but comfortably in between lean and ripe. Really very good - all murky raspberry, cherries, little bit of grip. — 8 days ago

Clos Vernay Fleurie Gamay 2015

Lyle Fass
9.0

Needed 2 hours. Minimum. Nose is super mineral. Some cherry. Still almost mute at 2 hours. Palate is round and squishy with good freshness. Not the purest wine. A bit lacking in fruit sweetness. But well made. But also lacking in inspiration.

Overnight this improved and gained depth, fruit and character. 8.8 to 9.0.
