    December 31, 2018 - Another nice bottle - very Brouilly but not too heavy or brooding.

    December 27, 2017 - Very nice balanced wine. Improved after about two hours of being opened.

    October 15, 2016 - Well made Brouilly typical of this producer. Excellent balance of fruit and tannins making for easy drinking. Highly recommended.

    July 30, 2016 - Fairly deep violet colour and sweet, almost Southern Rhone-ish/Grenachey nose, as seems to be the case with Bouland Bojos at least in the riper years that I've tasted. On the palate this has less weight than Bouland's Morgons, though still more than the Chiroubles. Good balance, finishes with mineral notes. Solid stuff.

    April 10, 2016 - Gorgeous ruby color. A good Cru Beaujolais must deliver awesome aromatics, and this one surely does: bright and dark cherries, some roses, along with a white pepper and crushed rocks, so pretty and elegant. The acidity is crisp and refreshing and so alive, but there’s a fine and dusty tannic presence. Pure black cherries, tart strawberries, a lovely earth, dark soil, graphite, violets, roses, white pepper, sweet basil, lasting minerals. A lovely and pure expression Gamay that is beautiful to drink now (as seems to be the case with 2013s)
