Another in the old school style of Cru Beaujolais. Garnet in color, clear and bright. The nose has cherries, some black cherries and what a friend noted as "Autumn spices" i.e. cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Medium bodied. Light tannins. Good balance. On the palate, black cherry fruit with a touch of anise. An almost menthol note on the finish. This drinks well on its own but even better with food. Poached salmon would work well. Drink over the next ten years or so.
This wine is named for the three vineyards that the fruit comes from: Rochegrès, Roche Noire and La Rochelle. The winery is also known as Domaine Vissoux. Ruby in color with slight purple hues. The nose is lighter but nice with cherries, and a slight celery seed note. Interesting. Medium bodied. On the palate, nice cherry fruit with the celery seed coming thru. Good acidity. Long finish. In an era when many Cru Beaujolais are getting riper, this is more classic in style. The acidity really kicks off the finish. This will drink better with food. It would be a great match with a
2020 Nicole Chanrion Domaine de la Voute des Crozes Côte de Brouilly, France, Beaujolais, Wine Review
Great showing for this wine (also see the note on their sparkling Gamay wine found at https://www.intowine.com/reviews/nv-domaine-de-la-voute-des-crozes-effer... Garnet in color with purple swirls, mostly clear and bright. The nose is deep with black cherries, cherries, and nutmeg. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Lovely texture.

Another Beaujolais from a top Burgundy negociant. Garnet in color with a purple core, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, cherry blossoms, strawberries and slight anise. Lovely texture. Light tannins. Lower acidity. Cherries with some anise especially on the finish. Drinking well now on its own and should work well with food. Mushroom pasta in a cream sauce would work well. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
Nice showing for this wine. This is made with semi-carbonic maceration (according to the importer). Garnet in color with some purple swirls. The nose has cherries and strawberries along with some floral notes. Very pretty. Lovely texture. Firm tannins. Nicely balanced. On the palate, cherries with some dark cherries. This is nice on its own and very food friendly. It would go well with (vegetarian) chili. Drink over the next eight to ten years.
Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with candied cherries, slight floral note and a hint of char. Light tannins. Velvety texture. On the palate, cherries, some cherry candy with a bit of minerality. Fennel on the finish. This drinks easily on its own and should work with most dishes other than sea food. A nice pasta wine. Drink over the next ten years.
While not inexpensive, this is one of the better "affordable" Grand Cru wines in Chablis. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is great with crushed shells and sea air. With air, a bit of lime comes out. Full bodied. No tannins. On the palate, limes, quince, slight salinity with a nice texture. Good acidity. Long finish. This drinks great on its own but is better with food. It would be great with oysters. Drink over the next eight to ten years.
My first time trying wine. Very nice. Gold green in color, clear and bright. The nose is a bit chalky with apples (mostly green). Good acidity. On the palate, this is crisp and tasty. Chalky with lemons. Nice finish. Nice on its own, but this is very food friendly. It went great with a caprese salad. Drink over the next seven to ten years. Nice value.
With most of my favorite Chablis producers now selling their wines for (well) north of $100 per bottle, Dampt has become one of our go to Chablis. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is slightly chalky with some minerality and slight lemon. Also some salinity. Full bodied. Crisp acidity. On the palate, lemons, chalk and minerality. Long finish. Delicious. This drinks well but better with food. Shellfish is ideal but so is Hummus and Roasted Veggies. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
This is a very nice premier cru Burgundy. Garnet in color, clear and bright. The nose has cherries, slight cinnamon, and spice. Medium bodied. Very light tannins. On the palate, cherries, slight sour cherries with a bit of spice. Nice finish. Drinking well now and should continue for another seven to ten years. Nice on its own but probably better with food. Salmon would be a nice choice.
