"Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, incense and candied flowers pick up a subtle mineral nuance in the glass. Seamless in texture offering juicy raspberry and spicecake flavors that deepen on the back half. Smoothly blends richness and vivacity, focused and long, with gentle tannins coming in late."
An incredible value and great example of serious Cru Beaujolais that will provide drinking pleasure for years to come (5-7 years easily for a tremendous vintage like 2015). -Keith
This meticulously farmed estate was founded (under its Latin name Villa Ponciago) over 1,000 years ago in 949 AD!
I can't recommend this enough for fans of Cru Beaujolais, those unfamiliar with the great wines of Southern Burgundy, and those who have been less than enthusiastic for Beaujolais Nouveau- this wine puts that to shame.
Try this Fleurie if you're looking for an alternative to mainstream reds. It is delicious yet serious at the same time. I regret that I don't pull these corks more often. -Keith
