Very high toned and pretty nose. That “natural” thing, spices, sour cherries, mid season cherries, floral, cinnamon. A knockout nose. Palate is less fruity than nose suggests. Pure, clean and juicy. Complex, pure and balanced. Very very drinkable and in the zone. Barely there tannins and very fresh.

Thanksgiving week with my in-laws.

Nose has higher toned blue/red fruits (raspberry, blackberry, under-ripe cherry), dried citrus peel, wet granite and light moist earth.

Palate has bright black cherry, blackberry, blood orange flesh, sweet-roasted red pepper, confectionery sugar and 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.

Very nice Beaujolais. Lots of cherry. Slightly cloudy in the glass. Needs at least an hour decant to come together. Medium bodied, quite seamless, decent acid. Nice wine.

Another big hit with the crowd (out of magnum) - hazy ruby, pure crunchy red fruits and sous bois 🥰
