2013 vintage. Nice and easy, very approachable wine. Great way to recruit new Beaujolais lovers (monopole from foot of Mont Brouilly). Savory, pepper, cranberry and pomegranate.

Ruby in color with light intensity.

Fruity on the nose with cherries, blueberries, plums, red candy, flowers, black pepper, vanilla, light oak and earth.

Light-bodied, soft and unbalanced, with high acidity.

Dry and very tart on the palate, with blueberries, sour cherries, plums, cedar, toast, vanilla, licorice, earth and black pepper.

Medium finish with round, yet firm, tannins and strawberries.

Simple and uninteresting. This one is not for me. Didn't add much to the experience, and too tart for my taste. Better with food, though.

This Burgundy red, is made from all Gamay grapes.

On the bottle it says 11%-14% ABV. Haven't seen that yet.
