Red fruit and funky nose. Tart red cherry palate, almost sour. Moderate chalky finish. Will reassess on day 2, but acidity seems to be moving to the fore. On night 2 was much smoother, slightly darker fruit profile. Lengthy tart and chalky but rather simple finish.
Popped and poured, youthful purple/ruby. Intriguing nose shows black raspberry, cherry, fresh cilantro, iron, earthy funk and subtle hints of black licorice. Seems to become more red-fruited as it aerates. Medium body, nice concentration. Such an expression of earthy, somewhat saline minerals and crushed stones on the palate...and while there's decent fruit underneath, it's the encapsulated purity of transparent terroir that defines this lovely wine. That said, this is still just a baby and there's a substantial chalkiness of tannins on the persistent close. Drink now with a decent amount of air, better to hold for 3-5+ years (if not a decade longer).
Deep red color. Aromas of red plums and sour cherries. Ripe, high acid juicy fruit in the mouth with very good depth and excellent length. Unusual grip and persistence on the palate for a Beaujolais. Very "old school" in style and substance. Though still very young, delicious with the excellent fish at Little Fish Restaurant.
