    January 6, 2022 - Needed around 45-60 minutes to come out of its shell, which is good because it initially felt like it could be closer to DOA. Floral on the nose. Expectedly, you get dried red fruit, but it has faded a bit compared to the best version of this I had in early-ish 2020. With the fruit receding, it really draws out just how mineral-y this wine is. I've never gnawed on granite, but I'm pretty sure that this is what cherry-granite trail mix tastes like. There are light touches of cloves and nutmeg, as well as bits of leather. Maybe a bit of black pepper. Silky mouthfeel until slightly grainy tannins rise up on the finish, but the acidity, on the higher side of medium, keeps this light and lively.

    I got these on the secondary market, so I have no idea how they were raised as children, but unless you know that your bottles were perfectly stored, I wouldn't push the aging too far on these because of the intensity of the fruit. Add or subtract a point or so based on your appreciation of mineral flavors in wine.

    October 25, 2021 - No one was really close (guesses were mostly Rhone, but some south and some north). Of course knowing what it was I thought quite typical- lovely acids, some mostly resolved tannin way in back, red fruit with spice and earth. B+

    September 19, 2021 - Accidentally grabbed this and opened it instead of the 2012... This was my last 2010 and boy was it hummin. I can't remember the last time this was so pop'n'pour good. So generous to the point of consumption over contemplation.

    Beaming sweet dark fruit, dried herbs. Tannins a little gritty but getting there. A delight.

    January 13, 2021 - In a lovely place- spicy red fruit with damp soil and a little tar. Tannins are well-integrated, bright acids, silky mouthfeel. What I want in a Beaujolais with a bit of age. No hurry but no hesitation. A-/B+

    October 29, 2020 - From the secondary market and of unknown provenance and / or storage. This seemed a little tired and was a pretty big step from a previous bottle from the same batch. It wasn't corked, but it drank a bit that way; the fruit was present, but a bit muted, tertiary notes were a bit more dusty than funky, occasional spice notes, but they're generally disjointed from the whole thing. It was generally pleasant, but this was just a shadow of previous bottles and of aged Cru Beaujolais, in general. I'm pretty certain that this was pretty far from the best showing that one could expect.
