Solid. Nice fruit of the red category, some complex earth/spice/herb stuff.

Waiting for the stinky sulphur, diaper nose to blow off... But there is promise in this glass for sure.

After triple decanting... Silky red fruits, meaty/game notes, perhaps a light metallic note at the end of the finish, all delicious but we enjoyed this bottle way too young.

Hard to decide whether to pair this meal with a mellow piano concerto or raw, soulful funk. And that's what I love about cru Beaujolais.

2013. Joyful juice. Equally appropriate for the picnic table or fine dining. It's classy either way.

It's rare to encounter a Beaujolais that needs decanting but this one absolutely required it. Once it arrived watch out, perfume like aromas for days of red berries, granite minerality, and subtle spices. A top 5 #bojo for me. #kermit #morgon #gamayzing #foillard

Sweet and sour. Not a ton of depth here in richness but layers of complexity continue. Good texture. VA is a bit high for me but brings higher toned fruit. Nice tannins to reel it all in.

This is a dead ringer for Pinot Noir! The magic of really well made Gamay with some bottle age...(sigh) #gamayzing
