A lovely savory, peppery gamay with notes of cassis, raspberry and anise. Great varietal character and intensity....

This is a very pretty wine that provides everything that I hope for from Beaujolais. On the nose, there's a lots of bright red fruit along with some floral and pepper notes. It's medium-light bodied with medium-high acidity and light tannins and quite a long finish. Give it a bit of a chill and try not to finish this bottle quicker than you had planned. Tasted October 2013.

This gamay from Brouilly opens with fresh red berry fruit and floral notes followed by a hint of peppery spice. The mouthfeel edges toward medium body with good acidity and some heat on the lingering finish. Tannins are tame. A good value for a Beaujolais Cru at under $20, but my local LCBO has it marked down to $16. I'm happy to take the last few bottles of their hands. Serve slightly chilled. Oct. 2014.
