Fleurie, Beaujolais

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay 2018

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. — 13 days ago

This textbook Beaujolais displays raspberry, cherry and floral pastille character while dusty mineral and baking spice nuances lend complexity and lift. Juicy, balanced and finely detailed, the 2018 provides immense pleasure now but will only get more interesting over the next few years. $20.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, November 2019) — 25 days ago

Domaine De La Chapelle Des Bois

"Grand Pré" Fleurie Gamay 2015

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. — 16 days ago

Totally agree on the vintages. 14s were killer. 15s just too much heat

Christmas cake, cherries, blueberries and cassis. Nice structure and acidity to balance the berry sweetness. Lovely for a winter's day! — 8 days ago

From the Windy City wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Beaujolais number 3 and it’s the best of the 3 I have tried this week. Really ripe cherries and chocolate — 15 days ago

Alain Graillot's kids' domaine. Very bright and racy, lean and focused. Red fruited with a tense mineral backbone. Just a tad hollow - needs food to show its' stuff, nonetheless engaging with a playful personality. Value is just ok, one can do better price-wise but no complaints really. — 10 days ago
