After realizing I’d never had a Beaujolais bottle before, I decided to find a top quality one to give a try. This is an “old vine” version from a very reputable producer.

Reddish purple in the glass but a bit translucent. Very candied and floral on the nose! Candied plum, orange zest, and cherry jolly rancher too. A wonderful entry and mid palate with notes of granite, cherry gummies, potpourri and an herbal note...maybe oregano? Very low acidity, and short finish. A fun wine to try and use as a benchmark/standard.

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

I wasn’t acquainted with the whole gang until now. Ready to grow old together, is all I got to say.

Really? A Beaujolais with this complexity and earthiness. Total delight by the glass at Charleston Grill

Not my favorite Beaujolais. Although it had the texture of a Beaujolais the initial smell was off.
