Mon amour ❤️ More powerful than the Cote de Brouilly, deeper and certainly more structure. This falls perfectly in the category of "power without weight".
Fruit profile's similar to the Cote de Brouilly - a mix of red and black fruits, with a little more weight and richness. A step up in spiciness and savouriness. Clear licorice, pepper, rhubarb, and beetroot notes. Some floral elements thrown in the mix. There's a super energetic acidity and stoniness. Long, smoky finish. Could drink a lot of this now, but cellaring would benefit it heaps.
From 60 years-old vines. Warmer site than the Cote de Brouilly. Organic, vinification semi-carbonic in concrete tanks without sulfur. Corne Verte - a blend of yellow and pink granite, clay, and diorite found only in Odenas. Elevage for 11 months in used foudres and barrels. Annual production of 3,000 bottles. — 12 days ago
plum and berries (cherries?)
after it opened up I'm literally having asmr from this wine it's so juicy and tingly. hits you with the bold fruit and then leaves you with that lingering tannin — 5 days ago
Darker more animal nose. More brooding. Smokey, blackberry velvet. Soil tones. Dark herbs. Deep, juicy and complex with amazing finesse and such richness. But fresh as a daisy and so so pure. Wow. Amazing minerality and granite . So clean for such a big boy. Sappy and so juicy and more obvious structure and tannin than La Chapelle. Stunning wine. Both are amazing but I prefer Godefroy as it’s deep and dark yet so elegant. — a month ago
One of my favourite young producers in Beaujolais. First tasted at AT in Paris and I scrambled to call my importer friend to work with Pierre. So glad I did - now it's ever simpler to get bottles 😜
Fine detailed, fresh, complex. Bright blackberry and red cherry fruit, set against a backdrop of meat and spice. There's a really elegant granitic element here. It's so good, but the single vineyard Les Grilles just a step up in depth and concentration. — 12 days ago
Very delicious and light. Realizing how much we enjoy a Gamay. Can’t tell the fruits but very enjoyable and easy to drink. — 10 hours ago
Chewy Beaujolais for stage 9 of #tourdefrance enjoyed with lamb curry. Meaty with round cherry fruit. Full mouth and a chalky finish. Very enjoyable. — 3 days ago
Insane nose. Huge berry fruit. Blackberry, raspberry, super complex. Granite. Earth and mineral. It’s just stunning. You gotta pay $150 for this in Côte de Nuits. Spice. Clove. Herbs. Just insane. Soil tones. What a palate. So so refined. So elegant. So pure and fresh. Huge blackberry and cherry fruit that is just crackling with wonderful velvety like tannins and stellar purity. This needs age but oh man bojo does not get much better. Amazing length. So complex but this baby will slay in 10 years. So juicy and with a wonderful structure and freshness. My god this is deep with such an insane hit of opulence. Stunning in every way. — a month ago
