Cherries and tannins — 14 days ago
This delicious Beaujolais-Nouveau (from vines that are up to 85 years old) brims with intense dark berry, floral and spice notes. Mineral overtones add urgency and back end cut to round things out in style. $18.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019) — 5 hours ago

Outstanding. A bit fuller bodied. — 8 days ago
This has exhilarating fruit intensity, lovely fine grained tannins and powerful minerality. Lively acidity and juicy texture throughout. Black cherry, licorice, orange peel, black tea and iron notes are particularly apparent tonight. This will age very well but is also extremely delicious to taste in its exuberant youth. — 2 days ago
Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.
Nose has wood smoke, crushed rocks, deep purple fruits are very generous, ripe blackberry and plum are prominent.
Palate has nice depth, sweet blackberry, black cherry, smoked ripe plum, confectionery sugar, hints of mild oak with a medium-long finish. Perfect entry to the world.
Debut commercial vintage from a son of one of the Masters of Beaujolais, at long last, Alex Foillard is bringing his wines to the world. Starting with an epic hail vintage, supply was quite limited for much of the North. Luckily Bouilly and Côte de Brouilly had minimal damage. For those in the know, 2016 Burgundy's will be wines for the ages. — 12 days ago
Balanced, some CO2 but cleaner than the fleurie from earlier. So delicious. — 6 days ago
Hay, leather, cherry, earth, a bit of a cola and candy cane too. Boy what a ride! The palate is perfectly drawn : superb acid backbone, extremely ripe cherry all along, some width, some weight, a bit of tannins this time (oh complexity), some grip and a bit of salt and meat along with a radiant cherry in a very long finish. As always this is grand 🍷 — 3 days ago
