Carbonic fruit. Strawberry and raspberry jam. Gassy and bit dirty, but blew off.

As expected, this opens with air to reveal the pretty side of 2014 with no over ripe notes. Perfume and classic Gamay brilliance of fruit. Love the un- tannic texture. Impressive!

I rarely give a perfect score ( I'm often close though). In a blind tasting 14 Gamays, I gave this wine 20pts out of 20. Perfect!
Everything I want from a Beaujolais, super complex, deep, controlled, pleasing in every aspect. Wow!

I wanted to love this but it had reduction that just would not go away. Still a fun drink.

This was perfect. Exactly what we were hoping for with chicken sausage skewers, ramen, the works.

Exquisite combination of cherries and bright red fruit. Paired with Thanksgiving dinner.

Cru Beaujolais for the win. Candied cranberries, strawberries, topsoil, and flowers, with a balanced minerally finish. Food friendly and Absolutely great.

Rich, sweet blackberry, bramble, baking spice. There is a nice mineral streak and med + acidity, but the alcohol is also noticeable (14%) and overall it’s just too ripe for my tastes. Would try again in a cooler vintage.
