Inky purple in color. The nose has cedar with some cherries and black cherries. On the palate, black cherries. Medium tannins. This wine is excellent but it seems to be close to ready to drink now and without the potential for much more improvement. That is not a bad thing (and it may even be a good thing) though.
A bit lighter in style (truer?) than most of the other 2015 Beaujolais I tasted. To me, that was a good thing. Purple/ruby in color. The nose is very tight at first but then opens to cherries with a touch of spice. Maybe also some rhubarb. On the palate, this is tart cherries. Bold acidity. I like this a lot but some may have issues with the tartness. Nice complex. Kept improving all night long. A Fass Selection wine.
Inky purple in color. Opaque. The nose has sandalwood, black raspberries and dark cherries. Deep and complex on the palate. Black cherries with some dark chocolate notes. A nice underlying earthiness. Medium tannins. Nice finish.
Purple/Ruby in color. The nose has dark cherries and a nice earthiness to it. Just a hint of funk. On the palate, this has sweet black cherry fruit. Seems packed quite tight. It just starts to unwind in the glass but needs some cellar time. Firm tannins.
Purple and opaque in color. The nose has black cherries, and black olives with some black raspberries. Again, it reminds me of the northern Rhone (not a bad thing). Very smooth. Deep and almost impenetrable at this point. Black raspberries and black cherry fruit. Firm tannins. Needs time but lots of potential.
Purple/ruby in color. Bright. The nose takes a moment then shows black cherries, some candied qualities. Someone said butterscotch, and that is close. With more air, black cherries and earthiness. On the palate, this is deep and complex. Tannic. Black raspberries and very clean. Blind I might have guessed Cote Rotie. Its best days are in the future IMO.
Showing just a bit of age at this point, but still has some development left. Ruby/purple in color. The nose is initially tight but opens with some celery and sandalwood. With air, cherries and a bit of earthiness come in. Even later some merde as well. On the palate, this is tart black cherries. Tingly acidity. Again, it opens with air to show more fruit. At the same time, more tannins emerge as well. Surprisingly tannic at this point, but enough fruit to warrant further ageing as well.
