Community Tasting Notes (60) Avg Score: 92.8 points

  • That score, 95, is an understatement, but one must be judicious when praising Beaujolais. After all, it's just Beaujolais, right? Not quite. This is easily the greatest Beaujolais I've ever tasted. Nothing has ever come close. Had my first bottle two or three years ago at the great New York restaurant Brooklyn Fare, and felt that way at the time. Just found a second bottle buried in my basement, forgotten. My apologies to Monsieur Foillard for the oversight. Possibly even better than the first bottle. Silkiness and delicacy reminiscent of a Denis Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru. This is the gamay of the gods.

  • Overdue tasting; 4/17/2021-4/18/2021: What a beauty. This was so airy and floral and bright on the nose with pomegranate, sour cherry and red apple. So zippy and brisk and clean on the palate, with su h purity of red fruits. Complexities of rose petal, clay, herbs and pepper. My wine of the night, dangerously crushable but also really complex.

  • Man what a great wine. Loads of cherries, strawberries, and spice. Palate has that juiciness carry over, with lively acidity. A bit more cranberry on the palate than the nose. Tasty, crushable, but with the complexity to make you think. Love it.

  • Complex nose of cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and baking spices on the nose. Lovely acidity with tart cherries, red fruit, pomegranate, and cranberries on the palate. Long finish. Outstanding as always.

  • Dec Catch Up @ C@B!: Andy insisted on opening this right after the Rostaing La Landonne 1998. Red fruits, strawberries, slight gummy notes. Nice floral, rose bouquet. Organic and natural in style. Very intriguing and impressive (so much so that I went out to buy the next day)! Guessed this to be a young burg. Bravo!
