I don't know. I wanted to try a high quality Beaujolais to see what all the fuss was about. This is supposedly a good producer. I have to chalk this experience up to my palate not being developed enough or I got a bad bottle. Menthol, earthy, and very little fruit expression. I thought Gamay was supposed to be fruity and easy drinking. This was not -- austere was the term that came to mind. I've got another bottle so maybe my luck will improve in a few years.

    Lack of fruit on the nose is generally not what one would consider a likely problem - although they do normally have some earthy notes to them.
