Côte De Brouilly, Beaujolais

Cuvée Mélanie Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2019

Nose of black cherry, with subtle violet. This is rocking with the juice and fruit! Very light with cherries and strawberries, with a hint of mint. Lovely! — 6 days ago

Black tea, pipe tobacco, and some candied fruit, with nice acidity and tannins on the finish. This is such a nice wine. Tons of character. — 14 days ago

Famille Geoffray Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2019

Absolutely excellent in youth. Aromatics and palate are exuberant dark berries & black pepper. Perfectly balanced between fruit & structure. This has a long life ahead, but hard to ignore as a youngster. Truly great. — a month ago

Raspberry is maybe the least interesting note - about as exciting as yellow birthday cake. This is good raspberry flavored wine, but raspberries can't ever be what, strawberry, cherry, violets, leather, coffee, cedar, vanilla can be. Apparently the raspberry situation ran rampant in Beaujolais in 2016.

This, in spite of the environment, is well constructed with the right levels of ripeness in good balance. Has some interesting stemmy flavors and a plush silky texture, salinity on the back.

If all we had in Beaujolais in 2016 is raspberries, Breton made raspberry-ade. The best with what he had.

@Ely Cohn I’m with you. Raspberry is my least favorite berry, hands down.

@Adam Beasley totally. Most boring note in wine.

I had with Passover meal. I have always found to be closed & more ‘ dumb’ in its infancy- almost like Olga Raffault chinon. Yet all the juicy & rewarding red fruit is there. Kermit importer. — a month ago

Cuvée Zaccharie Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

A brooding nose of dark fruits and earth with no signs of alcohol. Full body but the acidity keeps things in line. A mixture of red and blue fruit, and iron all surrounded by a core of juiciness. An easy cellar candidate . — a month ago
