Let’s call this the entry level Beaujolais for this distinct and somewhat reinvented producer. Long time organic farmed, now in the hands of youngest generation family winemaker and a shift in gears. Exciting stuff. Kind of in an outpost of Beaujolais in the village Blace. Four hectares of vine here.
Spicy scents, blasted with sour cherry, faint nuttiness, floral things. Violets? Something like that. Rose hip tea. Juicy texture, powdery tannins, very transparent and vibrant with this lacy, pure-as-can-be thing going on. It’s savoury, slightly wild, builds into an edgy, nutty savoury character decently. Feels refreshing, also somewhat serious. Lots to like here. - The Wine Front
