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.

This is some serious and intense Beaujolais. I’m glad I at least waited as long as I did to open this. Probably still opened too early. Delicious—loved this one.

Thévenet verkar ha fixat årgången rätt ok, men det märks ändå att det inte varit riktigt klockrena förhållanden. Stickigt, bittert avslut.

A mild earthy, sanguine note, that is masked by sweet, big red brambly fruit with slight floral notes. Medium acid, good tannins. Cranberry, red apple skins with dirt and tar finish.

2015. Really deserving of its Vinous rating. Let it open up for a while. Like wines from the other Gang of Four, too often the bottle is consumed before the magic occurs.

Great! Gentle full body. Friendly character and smooth finish. Yumm.
