Raspberry is maybe the least interesting note - about as exciting as yellow birthday cake. This is good raspberry flavored wine, but raspberries can't ever be what, strawberry, cherry, violets, leather, coffee, cedar, vanilla can be. Apparently the raspberry situation ran rampant in Beaujolais in 2016.

This, in spite of the environment, is well constructed with the right levels of ripeness in good balance. Has some interesting stemmy flavors and a plush silky texture, salinity on the back.

If all we had in Beaujolais in 2016 is raspberries, Breton made raspberry-ade. The best with what he had.

Nice selection from Guy Breton...new wine decanter.. why not! Unfortunately I had my favorite decanter slip through my fingers! 🙄
Tastes of under ripe raspberries ..forest floor and Bazooka bubble gum!

You’ve had the Morton, now have this Côte de Brouilly. Yes I will. Cassoulet night.

A grown up Beaujolais in opaque ruby. The aromas have spiced perfume and a distinguishing piney Douglas fir note that marries nicely to celery and raspberry undertones. Complex, delicate, and fruity favoring a Burgundian profile to candied Beaujolais fruit you’d get from carbonic methods. On the palette are forest notes, fruit, and perfume but also lots of minerals and earthy accents.
