Holly was making bœuf Bourgogne so I figured this would be a really nice way to ease into our dinner party. Initially, this was a little awkward, “grape-y” and somewhat prickly on the tongue, what seemed like some secondary fermentation happening in the bottle. After about 15min, the faint fizz was gone and this opened into something rather nice! A touch of grape jelly, a bit carbonic...super primary...certainly a bit whimsical at this stage. This would probably benefit from some time in the cellar.

Racy # Bruilly #beaujolais #gamay. Damp robust nose of white mushroom, rose petals, kirsch, forest floor. Bright lively red raspberries, sharp upon opening but sets into a smoother, rounder cherry with time, still showing wet soil and flowers.

Despite the vintage, this 15 is possessing a light touch and elegance. Unlike the 13, it's also very clean and pure fruited. There is a serious spice here, but not of pepper. RADISH spice!

Boogielayie, nuff said. Has a very country farm smell to it. Like the smurfs village harvesting coorants.

Some where between fresh, funky, and fussy. Some weirdo sour fruits, great mid palate and maybe some VA
