My favorite Beaujolais estate. Tariffs have fucked me on this one but they will be back. Zero carbonic. Stunningly aromatic nose. Deep cherries, berries, spice and smoke. Floral, ethereal and deep. So layered. Amazingly complex. Smells like elite Burgundy. How is this estate not well known is beyond me. Likely the aspirational pricing. Palate is a dream. So juicy, nimble and complex. In a perfect place. So elegant and pure. Haunting. Volnay like. So fine and refined. Awesome red fruits that explode in the mouth. High class silky tannins and great structure. Very very long.

Stunning nose. Takes a bit of coaxing but when it does, OH MY. Deep, dark, soil tones, super mineral, dark blackberry fruit, raspberry coulis, insane licorice. Palate is extraordinary. So pure and so deep, wonderful freshness and amazing dense but sappy and energetic fruit. Such impressive structure and purity. So clean. Finish is amazing and lasts and lasts. Floral and insane inner mouth aromas and juicy as all can be. The texture, the noble ripe tannins and are the standouts. As well as the creamy mid palate that finishes so juicy and so full of tiny dark berry fruit intensity. The finish surges with mineral and soil tones. That granite pops. One of the best MAV I’ve ever had.
