Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
90pts - Vinous
Bright purple. Fresh and energetic on the nose, featuring cherry and dark berry liqueur qualities and a smoky mineral topnote. Shows very good clarity and thrust on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that become sweeter on the back half. Displays sharp delineation on the nicely persistent finish, which features youthfully grippy tannins and a suggestion of bitter chocolate.
