2015 vintage. Seriously structured juice with a lot of black fruit that I believe would shine even more with a little less extraction as the tannin tends to overwhelm the fruit.

Pretty, but either needs a bit more age to gain interest, or never had it to begin with.

Totally transformed with food. Went from boring to wow after the first bite (of broccoli nonetheless)! A cru Beaujolais (from one of the 10 towns that makes great wine!) this St-Amour is light, with red fruit and a mineral bite. Fabulous with lighter food. Gotta love a food wine!

Good wine classic red fruit and earthy palate. Flawless but doesn’t have a lot of spirit, this wine is like the Tony Romo of gamay.

Great post Korean dinner wine - nice acid but a little more umph than your average beaujolais. Pleasantly satisfying.

A great red. Very feuitful bananas and ripe plum with blueberry hints. Cheery jam? Pomello with a lot of grapefruit
