This wine is outstanding. The kinds of wine that makes people realize just how good wines from Beaujolais can be. Ruby in color, slightly dark, clear and bright. The nose has black cherries, spice, slight soy sauce and some anise. On the palate, this has firm tannins. Black cherries, slightly candied with an underlying spice/minerality. Well balance. This needs about three to five more years until peak and then should be good for another five to ten after that. It will work well with fowl or heavier see food dishes.
