Medium ruby (quite saturated for Gamay). Some floral and herbal tones to go with ripe fruit. This has amazing and unusual almost syrupy black and blue fruit with a chocolatey entry. Somehow it manages to retain the underlying Moulin-à-Vent structure and stoniness. This is exciting and nowhere near fully resolved at this point.
Two nights later, it had held up amazingly well in the recorked bottle, losing none of its great fruit or depth.
Ruby in color with a bit of purple. Just a beautiful nose. Deep with dried meats, raspberries, slight macerated cherries, and a bit of a floral note. Not quite as good on the palate, but still outstanding. Cherries tightly layered with a damp forest floor. A bit of ripe cherries. This is still young and continued to improve. Riper than most Beaujolais perhaps in terms of vintages, but certainly within bonds. Very pretty wine.
