Not overly complicated. Just beautiful fruit and earth co-mingled. By the end of the dinner, the glass was singing, so if you have time to decant, do so. But this was a great accompaniment to our meal. From beginning to end.

Drinking as well as you'd expect. Bright red fruit, iron, and a hint of funky earth. Serious wine and serious value

Le millésime 2014 offre plus de volume et de matière. Tant dans la structure et les saveurs. Moins de tension (acidité) que dans les millésimes précédents (2011,2012,2013). J'adore

Immensely quaffable. Serve it lightly chilled and with some light food. A touch of strawberries without it becoming too fruity and bubblegum-my. Super tasty.

Fresh and savory, and maybe the only thing that could pull me away from a dry rosé on a pleasant, sunny afternoon.

First try of a real Beaujolais. Really amazing wine. Sort of like a good Pinot, but more plum flavors. Incredible nose of berries and plums. Long finish and soft tannins. No need to age it... Just great now and I understand now why many say that gamay gets a bad rap

Sometimes simple pleasures are the best. 13€ ($15 roughly) in the wine shop downstairs. Classic gamay nose of red berries plus a metallic dimension. On the palate this only fruit and glouglouness. Cherry all over the place and a salivating structure. Not long at all but a pleasure, friendly wine.
