Really ripe black cherry nose. On the palate the same black cherry fruit character is present but restrained and elegantly plays with balanced flavors of black pepper, rosemary, grass, wet soil and dried leaves. Lean in weight, silky in tannins with a little grip and solid acidity. A beautifully balanced wine that's very pleasant to drink. 3.5

Had the 2015 tonight. On first sip, aromas of #bouquet on the nose, #cherry #plum #strawberry notes, medium tannin #dryred, medium alcohol. #highacidity finishing up #peppery and hint of #leather. #youthful and #easytodrink on it's own. Perfect for chill mid spring day. One caveat on deacons sip - the texture is somewhat "thin" compared to other #beaujolais from #morgon or #fleurie and to me , that's less interesting :/ hence it is at lower price point. Still good quality for the price tho
