I know it's trendy to love these great Beaujolais wines, but the more wine I drink, the more I'm looking for the holy grail of flavor without heaviness. Clean pure flavors that taste "good" from fruitiness but evoke memories from earthiness (most of my good memories took place outdoors). And wine that finishes cleanly. This one does it, with controlled power to boot.

Bright red fruit. Tangy acidity. Smoke and spice. Perfect food wine.

Killer gamay! Insanely drinkable! Blackberry, stewed tomato, slightly vegetal but purity of fruit on the palate and loads of acid! Give me more! Jesus turn this 750 into a magnum!

Lighter shades of dark cherry. More density than Chiroubles, less weight than Morgon.

Excellent young Beaujolais. Both serious and refreshing.

The more I taste the better producers in Beaujolais, the more I understand and like these incredible wines. Brouilly is a favorite of mine, along with Morgon and Moulin a Vent. Like strawberry and raspberry coulis, fresh minerality and acids. Excellent length.

On day 4 herbal dirt with some black pepper has replaced its fruit. That's a good thing.
