Wow, first evening ok, some fruit, gentle and nothing wrong, but not much going on. Hiding for now, as I concluded last encounter as well. On the third day however, half of the bottle came to live, and came together, with delicate tickling cherry fruit and midpalate right there, and I did not mind it being warmed up to room temperature neither. I have read that Guy Breton does not like / tries to avoid tannins. This has a structure leaning on its acidity, to make it a seriously delicious wine for the next years.

Rough edges from pnp. Came together the second night.

Pronounced nose. Came together very nicely after 4 hours. Then it had this mineral (?) sweetness nicely placed in the last part of the palate.

My first Munjebel. Had it some weeks ago. Have had the Contadino produced last years, and comparing it to those. Bigger but not more complex. Initially from the pop, a big wave hitting the nose, but seemed to quickly fade, turning the focus over on to the familiar terracotta, dusty palate. This seams compact, broad on the palate but not achieving more complexity. Seemed warm, without much acidity, and quite stable over the couple of days tasting it. Before I opened it I thought it was early in its drinking window, but now (with my limited knowledge) Im only guessing it will not improve much further.

prefered the 2015 that i drank earlier this year. I remembered the 2015 to have a lovely round tropical fruitness. The 2017 felt thinner, a bit to much of tannins not having the fruit in support. Dont know if i twas the vintage or the two more years that made the difference. Still went well with rakfisk (norwegian fermented trout):)

Nicely perfumed, dark fruit forwards, warm, sweet spices and jam, one for christmas? Keeps together, not mouthfilling big, but rather stays on the tongue with some licorish, (mynthe/perhaps medical, as a typical association).

Fits together, dark and warm. Good on day 2.

Last bottle, glad I didnt wait any longer. Still holds up nicely, seamingly from a varm vintage. "Cat piss" nose pnp. Now I really know what people are talking about with the glue / VA. I still can find it on day 3. Holds up, but does not develop over the days. Diffuse fruit. Still loving the second half with the dusty brick acidity, terracotta lingering tannins.

Pnp: Up tempo, clean cut crozes. Cool leather on the nose. At he palate still cool and at slim at first, but quickly turning in to a broader, a touch of syrah sweetness, followed through by a none intrusive structure that would last, but drinks nicely now.
Textbook crozes for my inexperienced palate.
2hr. more peppery on the nose, and chewey on the palate. Would enjoyed a thicker body to it.

Nicely perfumed, straight red fruit, clean. Less "pottery" than the average Beaujolais cru´s. Bit alcohol that could have been more intergrated. Still the fruit hangs on all the way up to the finish, and gets companied by a bit acidity and minerals

Lovely perfumed, typically beaujolais nature wine sting to it. Goes over to on an acidity that I did not enjoy lingering on

Really dark, intense colour, more burned than cooked deep purple fruit notes, leaning on concrete (half is raised in concrete, half in old barrels). This is my fourth bottle. First one, in early 2018, got me so exited I bought the last two. David Reynaud have gone over to plastic caps, in that period. The first bottling seemed to be the best, with the most fresh fruit coming through. Maybe inbetween now? has a structure to perhaps overcome this phase. This was my last, so further future opinions comes appreciated :)

I don´t like it, I love it! Morning piss yellow, directly described, just lovely sharp fruit, broad juice-filling mouthfeel, acidity on the verge to take over. I don´t have the experience to know, but it´s not controverial to guess that patience will reward better balance.

Open for action. Lovely nose, cherry and the fresh fruit of beaujolais, lingering right up till the end. Tried the benchmark Foillard Cote de py 2017 the night after, and found it way of in comparrison. Perhaps unfair comparring as the Foillard is not ready to go, but confirming the quality of the Balagny. Had one bottle last year, and this one was superior, more pronounced. Congrats Julie!

Good acidity and structure, but the fruit was not up to it.

As previous bottle. Nicely perfumed on the nose and fresh cherry fruit dominating the taste. Noticing the acidity more this time.

Great nose, powerful but coherent wine. Receding over to some heavy tannins yet to be sufficient pulverized

Hiding away for now: I was initially muffled trying to pierce the shy dark minerally profile. My bottle did not show much fruit and vibrancy before the last glass, the second day, when the last third was double decanted for 2 hours.

Flott kraftig duft, rent lagd, naturlig stil. Som som regel vil man jo gjerne ha enda mer dybde / kompleksitet. Drikker fint nå

Clear, filtered from the looks.
Clean, polished, industrial pinot-ish character to start with. A rather boring start leading up to the characteristic volcanic finish.
Nice to taste the volcanic terroir on more neutral background. This is raised on wooden and steel vats, in contrast to the amfora raised Cornelissen (ive only had Contadino).

Nice juice. Amfora-feeling I suspect comming from concrete storage,

Great QPR. Fun combination with gamay and pinot noir. Not big but nice peppery and acidity.

Starts of with quite sweet berries. Clean and seemingly well made, lacks complexity and length. First bottle i opened seemed ready time-wise, the second one started with hot grippy fruit all over, and needed time to converge into something decent.

Wanted to test If i wanted to buy more for storage. Naturally it needed lots of air. Incresingly coherent, Nice tannins and structure, the fruit is blown up / hard to get a grip on, havent bought more yet

In the assertive warm climate red wines I tend to enjoy.
Needs some time in the glass, still some sketchy smell to it. Spicy, more black and reclined fruityness, a good grip with a nice tongue tickling length without beeing harsh. Distinct and still enjoyable. Better in a year or so i would guess

sorry to say, this didnt stand up to it´s pinot family. Maybe too young, but now it wasn´t balanced, lacked a fruit-character and wood integration, and didn´t integrate it´s alcohol percentage.

So called amfora wine. Distinct, but easy going at first. Nice firm and increasingly dry complexity with this dry soil-type of finish that I look for from Sicily. Contadino from Frank Corneliussen more lighter fruit and rich (94), Nere terre dryyyer, and less fruit drivven.
