People underestimate Beaujolais true beauty when they base it off of the Nouveau. This Village from Louis Jadot is an oldie but goody. 2012, 100% Gamay. Medium/light bodied, nose of lavender fields some crushed ripe cherries. Smooth and elegant on the palate. Finish is short n dry. Good entry into the genre, always makes for a good Thanksgiving wine. Low alcohol which makes it pair well with this cheese plate.

First sip acidic but then it became very light with food. Almost watery.

Juicy, ruby, a little bit spicy, with a nice minty finish. Not a serious wine, heaven knowns, but for $14, quite satisfactory.

Strawberries, field herbs, a whiff of balsamic. Restrained fruit, vanishing finish. It’s Gamay all right, but no more. 12.5% abv | $14

Red cherries, black cherries, unripe strawberries. Crazy fruit without being a bomb. Interesting notes of spice, a slight funk of metal, almost a rusty iron nail note. Crushed bricks, crushed stone, blood, red licorice. Almost no acidity to speak of. Great stand alone wine, drinkable, and easy to pinpoint. Great wine to change up normal drinking habits.
