Friend recco value Beaujolais. Perfectly pleasant but undistinctive. Very smoky nose; nice and fruity on the palate; a bit sparkly right when you open, no surprise given its youth. Probably worth aging a bit and trying again though that’s not going to happen. J likes — 6 days ago
Idiosyncratic Chardonnay with a lineup of notes that seem bizarrely out of box but come together in a wonderful way to form something I won't forget. No playbook for Chardonnay in Beaujolais.
This is extroverted and wavers between an artificial grapiness and blossoming florals, ripe orchard, citrus, and tropical fruits. Like Welch's grape soda or purple snow cones sitting there alongside the natural forms of green melon balls, fuzzy peach, soft apricot, and ginger.
Drank over three days and stayed consistent - the strangest mix I positively loved. — 19 days ago
Light ruby colour evoking Pinot-noir.
Beautiful nose that pinote on raspberry and especially vegetable notes: anise, fennel, herbs, dried flowers etc. Delicate mouth with fine tannins, but nevertheless with beautiful chewing material, return of raspberry and pepper in the finish. The perfect Beaujolais bourguignon. I love it!
Robe rubis légère évoquant le Pinot-noir.
Magnifique nez qui pinote sur des notes framboise et surtout végétales: anis, fenouil, herbes, fleurs séchées etc. Bouche délicate aux tanins fins, mais néanmoins avec de la belle matière à mâcher, retour de la framboise et poivre en finale. Le parfait beaujolais bourguignon. J’adore! — 2 days ago
But…there it was. It sang it’s siren song.
N: Big , beefy, dirty red beet, musky black cherries. Smoke and tar.
P: Black cherries, blood, iron, earth, dirt,
It’s said the Coté du Py Gamay vines are 100 years +. It shows. A knockout structured Beaujolais that’s always a fave. Delicious, if I was 40, I’d make plans to stash some away for 20 years.
A bit saved, day two, blacker and more tannic.
To quote Romain..” I love it.”!!!

Very young, shame to open but still showed nicely on Pnp: inky, opaque, delicate mostly red fruit, bit of black tinted fruit, but big time white pepper, smoke, leather & savory. Lush on palate, nice grip - maybe lacking some acidity, but all in all quite delicious — 15 days ago
