    December 22, 2019 - Totally delicious, though I’m realizing I prefer these with a little more unresolved structure.

    June 27, 2019 - Dull garnet - almost browning and somewhat cloudy - unfiltered
    Really not an attractive glass of wine and was a bit concerned prior to tasting
    Wow was I mistaken!
    Beautiful aromas of fresh red and black fruits with herbal/ celery undertones jumping out of the glass
    Full juicy palate of fresh fruit/ spice and cinnamon
    Medium acidity and tannins as expected
    This is drinking really well right now
    IMO this is equal to or better than any of Foillards Morgons I have tasted

    June 26, 2019 - Single blind tasting
    Odd color. Unfiltered, purple brown mix. No pleasant to look at in the glass
    Medium + aromatics of candy cherry with a secondary note of celery and herb
    Medium palate of crunchy cherry fruit with secondary of spices
    Medium acid and tannins
    Well balanced, beautiful example of Beaujolais.

    February 15, 2019 - Beautifully balanced Beaujolais. Bright elegant nose with flowers, red berry, mint, and licorice. In the mouth a nice balance of tart cherries, mint, berries with good acidity and structure. Hint of nutmeg. This has more depth than many other fleuries I have tasted. Fantastic long lingering taste. This wine keeps you searching. Love the low alcohol to taste balance. So Kermit Lynch.
