Cuvée l'Anciene Beaujolais Gamay 2018

Beautiful Beaujolais that transcends the appellation. With 3 years it’s starting to behave like a Pinot Noir. Blind of all, we’d certainly be wrong. A wine that needs at least one hour of aeration to give time to the beautiful material to deploy. Fine, tight and persistent tannins. Serve at 12-13 degrees.

Superbe Beaujolais qui transcende l’appellation. Avec 3 ans ça commence à se comporter comme un pinot noir, d’ailleurs à l’aveugle on s’y tromperait certainement. Un vin qui a besoin d’une heure d’aération au moins pour laisser le temps à la belle matière de se déployer. Tanins fin, serrés et persistants. Servir à 12-13 degrés.

Enjoyed this producers wines in the past, was excited to see this at the LWS. Excellent. Electric, vivid, with great energy and hums across the palate. Very floral and quite mineral, with red fruit on the palate along with some herbs and funk. Really comes alive with air. Coup de cœur... — a month ago

A bright gamay. These wines are usually a bit of a rollercoaster in terms of quality but this particular 2019 bottling was beautiful. Joyful! — 16 days ago

Fun to try different vintages in a short time period. The ‘18 shows more dark fruit with a touch of earth. The ‘16 had more spice and citrus. Beautiful and delicious. — a day ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

Only one bottle left... That strong nose with violet, cherry, hay, iron... Who couldn't love that? There is a huge acid backbone with a good width, a soft mouthfeel, a big bright ripe cherry note, a huge power house of a mid palate with tickling tannins that tend to dry up a bit a huge finish with cherry and even cherry spirit notes. That's probably my favorite kind of wine here — 13 days ago

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2006

Pulled from my cellar and brought to Tasting Group. Decanted for sediment and served within 30 minutes of opening. Cork was pulled with a Durand; intact and saturated about halfway. In customary fashion, served double-blind to the group. The color is a deep, slightly hazy garnet. Medium viscosity. The nose is insanely expressive. Mushrooms and forest floor dominated early but these characteristics actually took more of a back seat to the fruit after about 30-45 minutes of air. At that point, desiccated red fruit with strawberries, cherries and cranberries were predominate followed by Salmiaki, dried flowers, with the mushrooms and the forest floor. Some baking spices too. Sneaky tannin…putting it medium+ and medium+ acid. Moderate alcohol. The finish was long and silky. Such lovely lovely fruit still and dare I say, intense! The group was all over France and Italy with some choosing Barbaresco, some saying Brunello, some in Burgundy and others saying Southern Rhone. All were blown away that it was a 15 year old Beaujolais. Drink now or over the next few years. — 21 days ago

Great note, this bottle exemplifies why we all should age Beaujolais! Especially MaV
