    February 22, 2019 - Popped and poured. Medium bright purple color. Nose was pretty funky with some brett notes and mixed ripe red berry fruits. Not exactly a pleasant nose but it improved a little bit with air. Ripe red fruits on the palate yet finishes slightly tart. More juicy and ripe than dry. Medium acid and tannin. This wine proved to me that 2015 is not the vintage for Beaujolais I want to have in the cellar. Thankfully this is only 1 of 2 bottles. Completely missing the freshness and crispness I look for. This was overripe for me.

    October 29, 2018 - Deep rich colour.grapihite, ripe blueberries, minerals on palate. Delicious mouth watering acidity on finish. Beautifully balanced and one of the best Beaujolais I have ever had. It does not get much better than this for gamay.

    July 26, 2018 - Well maybe my taste is evolving since the last 2 bottles, definitely funky, grapiness faded, never got comfortable with the flavor but it slowly grew on me, still not sure if this is what the wine should taste like as Vinous likes it so much and described a different wine, not typical Gamay flavor, ok I am puzzled, drank with barbecued chicken, might try another vintage.
