Väldigt fyllig, torr, stark men avmätt rökighet — 12 days ago
For me, a much better tipple than the 16' Uchizy Les Maranches. Showing more elegance and grace. Crisp, salty, and quite powerful. Great value for the price, but perhaps even more so once it gains more complexity with bottle age.
NB: Interesting to note that Clos du Four is consistently Lafon's most mineral Macon site, courtesy of some vine age (> 30 yo) and really poor rocky soils. Also, the site's further south than Les Maranches. What a stark difference! — 4 months ago
Very drinkable and a solid table wine but not a standout, probably because the last Beaujolais I had was the JFD. still an incredible value and would definitely buy again, even if it’s missing the stark contrast of bright fruit + smoke/minerality that makes gamay what it is. — a month ago
Dark and inky garnet color. Aromas and flavors of smokey vanilla, wet earth, with an herbal note of sage over the top of the black fruits which are still coming through nicely. Super savory and meaty tannins and stark acidity tell me this can age infinitely! — 4 months ago
Raisin, plum, absolutely beautiful color. Damaged but manageable cork — 6 months ago
100% Mourvèdre - has lifted stripped down elegance and lithe structure, with slow building fruit, but there is a stark leather complexity and mineral edge from its forlorn mediterranean landscape. Reminds you of the unadorned, sunwashed, foreboding air of Mario Sorrento’s early 90s Calvin Klein ‘Obession’ campaign with Kate Moss. — 6 months ago
