TASTING NOTE: From the 'cru' village that makes the biggest, longest lived gamays of Beaujolais, comes a quite deeply coloured youthful example. It sports ripe sweet plummy fruit, florals, licorice and hay. It is medium bodied, fairly plush and dense with some salt and pepper spice on the palate. It is warm, rich and fairy dense - certainly among the biggest - with some dusty tannin. The length is excellent. Best 2023 to 2028. Score - 91 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, 2020) Price $ 23.95
