Little sign of the hallmark carbonic maceration smells of strawberries and cinnamon. In their place are more elegant Burgundian aromatics of cherry licorice, flower gardens mulched with fresh forest compost, and just a wee curl of sandalwood smoke. A sip is structured and dense with sappy wild bramble fruit. If any comparison to Cru Beaujolais is to be made, it has to be to the age-worthy specimens from Morgon and Moulin-à-vent.

Good intensity with medium complexity showing mainly compact red fruit and anise. The palate was firmly structured and well balanced with great energy. The wine should gain more complexity with another year in bottle. Decent length. #cluselroch #gamay #ctbucklinwine

Great earthy, mulchy nose. Red fruits, medium body on the palette. Delicious and enjoyable.

Under appreciated this at first. Taut cranberry acidity and thorny bush fruit. It doesn’t linger on the palette, but while it’s there it is great. A perfect bistro wine for the high acidity red lover.
