This wine is drinking beautifully in April 2013... alas, it was my last bottle. David Lawrason's description nails it: an enticing black cherry and blueberry nose, with hints of leather, licorice, and meaty notes. When first opened, it made my thoughts turn more to South Africa than Beaujolais. We kept much of the bottle (vacu-vin'ed and refrigerated) for the next day. When retasted, some of those more volatile nuances were less apparent, leaving that tasty fruit and velvety mouth feel. It really shows the potential of the Gamay grape under the right conditions.

This is truly an intense, heavier gamay on the taste and the finish than for example the Chateau de Chatelard from Fleurie which I would more readily recommend. Mind you, that probably just reflects our personal preference for the lighter bodied Beaujolais. Try both to taste the differences to be found from the region. Part of what makes wine fun.
