Gorgeous red fruit, mineral/rock laden with florals and great acid..however a little barnyard funk and stemmy that blew off in time...well structured...

I unabashedly love this wine. Night one was all hedonism, with sappy fresh dark fruit, ripe to bursting and currant liqueur. A real celebration of fruit. On the second night it's much firmer, suggesting this could last longer than one might think

Shy upon opening. Started emerging in the glass about 30-45 minutes later, showing petrichor, fresh garden rain, flower and grape stems, and a medley of dark berries. So good. Velvety texture and imminently gulpable.

Leaps out of the glass with flowers, an almost kirsch-like red cherry, granite, a tinge of funk, and an intoxicating mix of herbs and spices. Like a field of wildflowers that's been dusted with cinnamon, star anise, and clove. Melds together over time into a sexy perfume that would be unmistakable if I came across it decades from now. Everything translates through to the palate in a juicy and lively celebration. Relative to Gamay, or Beaujolais in general, this has weight and length in spades. I wish I hadn't waited until this vintage to try this producer. If there's better Gamay I'm sure I won't find it because I'll be too busy drinking this.

Nice texture and fruit underneath, but brett overwhelms.

Pretty dark for Beaujolais, close to magenta. Loads of red fruits, especially strawberry hard candies, mixed with some herbs and spices. Crystal clear on the palate, dusty tannins and leather, really nice structure and acidity. This one can definitely age. Very impressive. 13.5% alc. 2015 vintage
