Is it that there are a bunch of fresh cut lilacs in my kitchen or is it the wine?! Hard to say because I do remember some purple notes last time I opened a bottle. This is so pretty and balanced with great notes of lilac πŸ˜‰, rose petal and strawberry. Has fleshed out since I tried it 6-8 months ago.

Started with muted raspberry/mineral notes, blossoming after an hour, strawberry/raspberry notes are hitting hard, this is way too easy to enjoy.

Let it open for a bit. Initially had an off smell but once that went away, nice light soft mineral wine w good texture and very approachable.

Checking in on 2016. Delicious now, would decant. Tons of promise for the future. A breath of fresh air when compared to the 2015 vintage in Beaujolais as a whole.
