Fleurie, Beaujolais

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Gamay 2013

Nose is a hoisin, deep red fruit, violets, dried herbs, a touch of meat. Clove and spice. Palate still bright. Reliably good with age. — a day ago

La Dot! Oh how I love thee. Way way too young. But glorious! Nose is showing some reduction. Will blow off. Gorgeous ripe cherries. Smoke. Leather. Minerals. Floral. Really complex. Palate is so good. So refined and elegant with huge structure and sap. Such purity and depth. Salty almost on the very long finish. Great freshness and explosiveness. Great fruit density as well. Check back in 5 years. — a month ago

Château DES LABOURONS

Fleurie Gamay 2016

Floral because it’s Fleurie? Maybe not but I’ll never stop commenting on how much I love that Cru Beaujolais sounds like it tastes. Violets just throw themselves at you like a bridal bouquet (don’t know if violets are traditional to a bouquet but if I ever have one maybe they will be) and anyway even if you are a commitment-phobe like me you’re gonna catch this wine. There may be rose or so and some plums and then just this wine wants to flow through your veins with happiness and if happiness flowing through your veins is something a relationship could bring then I am at least giving this a second date. — a month ago

Wet earth and gravel on the nose. Bright berry jam, currents, violet, and cranberries. Light but complex and really enjoyable. Great summer red. — 13 days ago

Cote De Brouilly Gamay 2016

Restorative. Needed this boost from this strong yet elegant one. Hope Lucas and Dom enjoyed the Russian leadership Matryoshka dolls since I had no toys. — 20 days ago

Lafarge amazing domaine between Burgundy and Beaujolais

Domaine Chamonard

Fleurie Gamay 2018

Still crushing it, this wine presents now with dark black cherry, lavender, a slight vinyl/inflatable pool toy note Gamay tends to give me, and plenty of herbal/piney deliciousness on the palate. Sappy but cut by a well integrated minerality. — 17 days ago
