vinous logo"Lurid ruby-red. Bright, sharply defined red fruit and floral scents are sharpened by a mineral nuance that builds with aeration. Shows very good clarity and bite on the palate, offering subtly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that deepen on the back half. Fine-grained tannins shape the finish, which lingers with very good, spicy tenacity. - Josh Raynolds"

wa"The 2016 Beaujolais Villages Unfiltered saw half the fruit destemmed and the other half going through carbonic maceration. It has a joyful bouquet of red cherries and blackcurrant while the palate is ripe and candied, fresh in the mouth with a crisp finish. Fine.- Neal Martin "

iwinereview"Unfiltered and medium dark ruby in color, the Beaujolais Villages shows young concentrated dark red plum flavors with a hint of garden herbs, earth, and minerals. It is big and a bit chewy on the palate with lingering red raspberry on the finish."

wine enthusiast 88 pts"A ripe wine that has some good tannins as well as rich black fruits. With a gentle shot of acidity, it is warm and full bodied. The structure will allow the wine to age further and it will be even better from 2017. - Roger Voss "

vinous logo"Brilliant magenta. Primary red and blue fruits, candied flowers and a hint of white pepper on the fragrant nose. Juicy raspberry and boysenberry flavors flesh out with air while maintaining urgency. Lingers with good, fruity persistence, leaving a subtle touch of bitter cherry behind. - Josh Raynolds"
