    June 20, 2016 - From MAGNUM:
    Color: Ruby core with a light meniscus
    Smell: Earth, floral, dried beef, with black & blue fruits.
    Taste: Red fruits dominate with hints of earth driven notes of mushroom with hint of spices
    Overall: While this is certainly enjoyable now, it will clearly only get better with time sideways. After about 12 hours in a decanter the wine still showed it's sharp acidity on the palate and was only at it's best with food. Light bodied, high acidity, and a wine that really calls for something fatty to be served with it like Eppoisses. Outstanding. Given that this is a Magnum, I'd suspect that this will be best in about 5-8 years from a 750ml and deserves 10+ in a Magnum format.

    April 10, 2016 - Really nice value, still could use 2-3 years before optimum window but really nice all around.

    April 9, 2016 - Crunchy berries, lots of acidity and grip. Great concentration of cherry, and wet leaf tones throughout.

    January 24, 2016 - Dark red, clear. Took a few hours to open up, and better on the second day. Bright, floral nose of red fruit and black tea. Medium acidity and tannin. Lots of earthy fruit flavors, a good sourness, and plush on the palate. Long finish. This is absolutely delicious and seems like it still has years ahead of it.

    November 1, 2015 - A delightful magnum at a restaurant served at proper cellar temp. Like other fine 2011 cru Beaujolais, this bottle needs a couple of years to unfold some complexity but is very nice to consume now. Less prominent black pepper mixed nicely with dried cherry, a very nice mellifluous mouth feel, strawberry and bright cherry and some earthy overtones. Does not need a decant.
