ONE OF THE BEST ESTATE BOTTLED SINGLE VINEYARD CRU BEAUJOLAIS!!

"Delicate and balanced, with a finely strung profile of peach, raspberry and currant fruit, supported by tangy acidity that highlights the mineral, floral and spice details on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,700 cases made, 220 cases imported. -GS" (WS)

"Lurid ruby. An expressive, spice-accented bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, cola and potpourri, and a smoky mineral element adds urgency. Supple, broad and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry and licorice flavors that tighten up slowly with air. Shows good heft and closes sappy, gently tannic and quite long, leaving a subtle violet pastille note behind." (VM)

"Dried cherries with some flowers on the nose, following through to a medium body with menthol, bark and dried tea. Subtle and complex. From 60-year-old vines. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Old vines planted on granite on the Darroze estate give this richly structured and dense wine. It has a layers of red-berry fruits, tannins and a youthful mineral texture. All these elements will come together over the next few months, so drink this wine after 2020. Roger Voss" (WE)
