I love this wine simple and easy super delicious and a little crunchy as we would expect from a much more expensive bottling

Quite simple with raspberry jam dominating the show. Maybe a touch of secondary fermentation? I sensed the slightest prick of effervescence.

Bright magenta. High-pitched red fruit and lavender aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a mineral nuance as the wine stretches out. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. In a vibrant style, with no excess fat and a very long, smooth finish that echoes the red fruit note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

Foillard always delivers superior quality, and this is a relatively good bargain. Solid fruit, charming and approachable. Also a surprisingly simple wine at this price, lacking acidity. I would recommend that my customers stick to cru level Beaujolais selections that offer more complexity, brightness and overall character at the same price point or lower. Solid entry level wine.

Good fruit and very juicy. Not a ton of acid so this one is an easy drinker. Wish it didn't have the famous name then it could have been great at 10 dollars cheaper.

Super solid Villages. On the simple side, but flawless, and held up overnight for great second day drinking too (a very underrated quality these days).
