Nose is very “Foillard 15” which is muted and broad. Strawberry, cherry, raspberry and spice, elegant and mineral but a bit soupy. Some nice wet earth. Palate is rich and ripe and hot and messy and is kind of a problem. I think this will improve with air but not be great.

Last bday wine of the night appropriately blurry but delicious! So good we had a second bottle. P.S. no negative 2015 comments from me!

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. This was a fully different bottle than the others (same vintage) enjoyed previously. Immense green vegetable/pepper notes for the first 24 hours, and then finally revealed some minor cherry traits. Not sure what was going on with this particular bottle, it was certainly off.

Imagine the brightest cherry note (nose) your can imagine, then multiply that by 3x and your getting closer to this bottle. Acidity so balanced with mineral notes, exceptional, best QPR in the business of Gamay! Decanted 4+ hours, right choice!

And then, there was this wine we opened after all the rest were done. What a stellar way to cap off just a wonderful night of great wine.

Classic, beautifully approachable, slight Brett, but definitely adds to the charm.

More ‘15 than Foillard. Nose has load of crushed rock, intense hard-candy like grape cherry, and a high-toned, almost eucalyptus like note. Highly-extracted, and slightly bitter in the mouth. A scorched earth note too. Meh. At least I’m working through my ill-advised purchases of 15 Bojos.

No formal notes but gosh had I missed this! This is elite beaujolais wine crafting. Bright fruit, matter, nuances, in a nutshell life in the glass. With that Foillard touch that can't be mistaken. More of that !
