"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2012

My favorite Beaujolais is Cuvee Correllette from Jean Foillard. To me it is the perfect marriage of granite, fruit, florals and herbs. Cracking freshness and persistence all elegantly presented to keep you coming back for more...this is the real deal in Bojo kids!

Going French bananas on a Tuesday night!
This wine is like war and roses....smoke, tar, flowers and fruit with a granite underpinning...

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2011

If it's hot out and you want a red wine, this is where to go, Beaujolais Cru wines, preferably from the Cru sites of Morgon, Fleurie, or Moulin-a-Vent. Brouilly is good too with the right producer. Aromas and flavors of red berries crushed onto limestone rocks. The weight is what makes it great when it's hot out as this flows over the palate with ease and freshness from the electric acidity. #foillard — 4 years ago

Domaine De La Grand'Cour (Jean-Louis Dutraive)

Les Clos Cuvée Vielles Vignes Fleurie Gamay 2014

After the hype from Somm2 and good feedback from wine biz buds, my verdict is this is a very, very good Beaujolais Cru. I definitely recommend you try it if you are into Burgundy or esp Cru Bojo. My wife guessed Burgundy blind when I poured it for her. Like ripe red raspberry and bing Cherry, with a dash of roasted herbs smeared on a granite rock...yeah, literally that. The aroma is a perfume of red fruits caught in a tug of war with a granite rock-like minerality and roasted herbs and forest floor. The palate is dead sexy, juicy and sappy fruit and acidity, with a perfect balance and elegance that feels weightless. Thanks for the enlightenment @Jason Wise and @Brian McClintic! Now I can add #dutraive to my faves from #beaujolais like #lapierre #thivin #foillard #sunier #thevenet — 4 years ago

Despres also had a quick appearance in the film and is very good as well.

It's rare to encounter a Beaujolais that needs decanting but this one absolutely required it. Once it arrived watch out, perfume like aromas for days of red berries, granite minerality, and subtle spices. A top 5 #bojo for me. #kermit #morgon #gamayzing #foillard — 4 years ago
