  • I think this is progressing along quite well. The young, sharp, sour grip and high acidity has softened into a lightly tart pull on the fruit so there is better balance between the two. A little bit of aged Gamay character is coming out now and should just continue to improve for a few more years. Saving my last one for another year, at least.

  • Rustic yet fruit driven. An interesting balance of fruit earth and bright acids. A little off kilter at times but never unpleasant.

  • Nose is right in line with gamay, buy unlike some other simple beaujolais, this has a stewed fruit and earthy nose with a hint of spice. The palate is fruity and initially more in line with beaujolais nouveau when served cold-cool, but as it reaches room temp, it puts on some serious weight, with nice backbone of acidity and some mineral elements. This is a fantastic beaujolais. Not as complex as some of the cru beaujolais I've had from Morgon (in that it lacks some of the floral aromatics and powerful, structured finish), but also $10 less in price than those wines. All in all, this is a quality wine and delivers $16 of enjoyable drinking experience.

  • Last tasting of this was January of 2013. From my last note, very little has changed except for some extra floral notes in the bouquet. Very bright acidity and stones in the structure. Tart cranberry and rhubarb dance in the mouth. The swallow is clean and cool and the finish expands the palette of flavors. 4+12+16+8 = 90
