    April 2, 2020 - Almost opaque dark purple color, moderate nose, full-bodied with ripe fruit such as plums, good acidity level, some fruit on the finish

    March 8, 2020 - This is so tasty and approachable, darker berry fruit, really classic gamay, plenty of mouthwatering acidity, even a hint of interesting saline, fine but present structure, very clean and delicious, I could drink this every night.

    January 17, 2020 - Light Minerality. Very fresh with bright fruits. Very nice nose and quite quaffable.

    January 2, 2020 - There’s a bit of reduction on the nose which cloaks the red berries with fresh rubber. The palate is quite dense and firmly tannic...very serious for a Beaujolais villages, but there’s a sense that something fun and fresh lurks underneath all the reduction and structure. Rated 89 day 1.

    Edit: this wine improved substantially on the second day. The rubber smell has dissipated to reveal the fresh red berry fruit I was looking for. Tannins have also softened and the wine has great balance. 91 points day 2.
