Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

Brooding, corpulent blue and black things. Tannic, but the tannins are well integrated. Avoids the monolithic qualities that detract from a few 2015s. #brun #cotedebrouilly #gamay #beaujolais — 2 years ago

Domaine Ruet

Brouilly Gamay 2016

Inch perfect, and faithful to the appellation. Lots of that “blue” Brouilly thing. Fresh, lower alcohols and guzzleworthy. #brouilly #beaujolais #gamay — 2 years ago

Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2016

Chunky. Sour fruits and granite. Solid; not terribly complex, but you get the feeling it was quite hot and dry here in ‘16. Super effort at getting balance and preserving freshness. #gelin #beaujolaisvillages #gamay — a year ago

Domaine du Vissoux / Pierre-Marie Chermette

Vignes Centenaires Coeur du Vendange Beaujolais Gamay 2017

Sour fruits, cranberries. Real energy and pop. Fine, fruity and transparent: the essence of AOC Beaujolais. Shows how great these wines can be in the hands of a grower confident enough to get out of the way. #chermette #beaujolais #gamay — a year ago

Louis Boillot

Les Brussellions Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Vinified a la Bourguignon; no carbonic. Elevage in neutral tonneaux. Blueberry, boysenberry, pinot spice. Sappy. This is the type of wine that argues the case that great Beaujolais is truly Burgundy. #louisboillot #moulinavent #gamay #beaujolais — 2 years ago

Morgon Cote du Puy 2017

Shockingly fine. Pure, energetic, fruity and engaging, with the extra intensity and complexity that comes from extremely old vines. This is as riveting in its youth as Brunet’s legendary 2014. Not as big as the ‘15 or ‘16, but way more detailed. One of the greatest young Bojos I’ve ever tasted. #domainederobert #morgon #gamay — a year ago

Brouilly Les Éronnes 2015

Blue & black fruits. Monolithic. Kinda bretty/funky, but it’s not over the top. Might just need a few years. #jambon #brouilly #gamay — a year ago

Les Bourrons Chiroubles Gamay 2016

Slammable. Sour fruits, rhubarb, pulverized rocks. Pure, focused and clean as a whistle. Old school, in all the best ways. #coquelet #chiroubles #gamay — 2 years ago
