“… Juicy and incisive, offering bitter cherry and black currant flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Shows very good energy and zesty cut on the long, gently tannic finish, which hangs on with impressive, spicy persistence.”

“… Nervy, spice-tinged red currant and cherry aromas take a turn to deeper cassis … Finishes sappy and spicy, with a jolt of smoky minerals and dusty tannins coming in late ...”

"A handsome, deep red color with purple tints and lovely aromas, with perfectly mature red and black fruit, hints of spice and floral notes of rose, peony and violet. Good body with fine tannins and good length. Rich, corpulent and complex…"

“Despite its firmness, this is not an aggressive or tannic wine, but rather a well-balanced young wine. Not at all grapey … Drink it now with hearty winter fare or put it into the cellar to see for yourself how ‘Beaujolais’ can develop.”

“From a fine vintage, this is a rich, generous and impressive wine. It has structure, spice and a creamy texture from the 14 months in wood. Great acidity gives just the right amount of freshness to the black currant and black-cherry fruits.”

“This wine is soft and rounded, ready to drink with its rich black-fruit character and fully integrated tannins. It holds a blend from five different parcels on the estate, ripe in berry fruits and fragrant with the wood aging. Acidity gives a lift…”

"From a seven-acre parcel on the estate and produced from 35-year-old vines, this is a tannin-dominated wine. It is firm, with concentration that is just beginning to show the rich black-cherry fruits."

"Creamed black cherry, spiced plum and lavender flavors weave together in this charming red, with cool mineral, licorice and herbal notes gliding into the mouthwatering finish."

"Richly smoky and spiced, offering steeped black cherry, fig cake and herb flavors, accented by black olive, espresso crème and star anise details. Finely knit, with a lasting, grippy finish."

“… this one stood out for its enticing, savory profile, an appetite inducing combination of saturated cool fruit and meaty flavors of game. Scents of violets and stones add to the complexity, especially in the company of rognons.”

“This wine’s tense black fruit carries notes of mushrooms and moss, an umami character that brings to mind the understory of a forest. The flavors are full on and potent, with enough richness to match roast quail or other game.”

“It is an austere wine in 2011, almost somber in the context of Beaujolais. The black, mineral-inflected tannins and firm acidity lend it structure, lifting the dark spice toward complexity. For braised meats.”

“…its structure facing more toward the Rhône than to the Côte d’Or. Ripe and muscular, powerful and compressed, this has a clove-like note of Brett but enough juiciness in the finish for the fruit to last past the bittersweet tannins.”

“An exceptional, elegant wine with a noticeable amount of depth — perhaps the fullest Cru du Beaujolais I have had. Presents flavors of black cherry at times, raspberry at others, as well as aromas that recall leather, forest and sand.”

".... Lively, focused and pure, with intense red fruit liqueur flavors that put on weight with air. Dusty tannins shape the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and just a hint of fine-grained tannins."
