Blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir. Great fruity character and super interesting.

This striking blend of Beaujolais Gamay and Côte d'Or Pinot Noir offers cool scents of black cherry and licorice and a noble rusticity to its very ripe, plush flavors of black raspberry and spices energized by saline minerality and a note of granite. Broad tannins won't prevent early enjoyment. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar 2018) $25

Dark ruby color, subtle Violet aroma, red cherry, blueberry, a bit dusty, raspberry, red plum, med acidity, med tannin, med to med plus body, ripe fig, ripe banana peel, just a touch of cinnamon, clove oaky note. 2/3 Gamay & 1/3 Pinot. Not sure if I will spend that much for a Gamay blend and the grapes r from all over the Beaujolais region.

Moderate reddish purple. Aromatic with raspberry, black cherry, violets, and hints of cloves. Exuberant dark fruit on the palate with balanced acidity and surprising tannic structure. Liger-Belair weds biodynamic viticulture to his non-interventionist style of wine making to produce his plump style blending “les deux terres” (the two lands) with 75% Gamay from his Moulin-à-Vent cru Beaujolais parcel and 25% Pinot from Bourgogne parcels. This lovely wine is miles away from Beaujolais Nouveau and a fantastic example of the “serious wine” that can be produced there. $25.

Perfumed on the nose with cherry cola, herbs, potpourri, dried rose petals, and menthol. On the palate pretty acidic with ripe cherries and plums.
