Beautiful, very pale ruby appearance - although almost pink like stewed rhubarb. Pronounced on the nose, and then an array of varying red fruits, cranberry, strawberry, red currant. High acidity across the tongue, soft tannins and med high alcohol really make this wine a treat. Partial carbonic maceration really adds to the character of this wine by the master Guy Breton. Highly recommend 👍 — 9 days 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. — a month ago

Limpid ruby, just beautiful to look at. Nose is characterized by high toned florals that are only a whisper now, even after a day open, but I suspect will develop with time. On the palate, fruit that is at once flamboyant and delicate. Purple and red fruit shape shift through expressions of red currant, purple raspberry, cranberry, tart cherry and red apple candy. This is deepened with a turn to the medicinal— cherry ludens, maybe a dash of peychauds— as well as the mineral. Silken texture with real depth despite so little extraction, tannins, or even too much acid. Subtlety reigns supreme; with herbal, mineral and textural nuances providing balance. This is a really fascinating wine. I’d say in 2-3 years it will be singing, after that I’m not sure how it will develop. — 23 days ago
