Consistent as ever. Not my favorite vintage, but always one of my go-to's. Never disappoints. Always super aromatic, and can't really seem to pull my nose out of the glass.

2014, a little young but delish Gamay, great minerality, flowers, touch of garrigue.

Spot on juicy funky Cru Beaujolais! Bright , stemmy and mineral driven. Tasty stuff. I always like wines from V59.

Dark and very dry fruits, mid fruits follow, wet black earth and it finishes flat and short.

Beautiful and exceedingly aromatic this wine is a delight. Mineral driven Cru Beaujolais with slight funky notes, subtle herbal notes, and dangerously delicious wild strawberries.

A pure expression of highly aromatic Beaujolais, displays expansive, spice-tinged strawberry, blood orange, floral pastille scents and flavors. Juicy and lithe, it’s a superb example of this classically proportioned vintage. Shows the Gamay variety at its most elegant and complex. (JR)
