Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Product #31115 (In Stock)
Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015

Long for fine white Burgundy for under $20?  You have to look a little further afield than in days of old, but it's still out there for the finding if you try long and hard enough.  Here's a fine example.

Laurent Perrachon has built a reputation as one of Beaujolais best independent producers and one of the few to make reds from six different Beaujolais Crus. The reds are great, but his tiny production white Beaujolais really stole our hearts.  It's 100% "Perle Blanche" (the local name for Chardonnay) grown on limestone-clay soils, harvested entirely by hand, and made in stainless steel tank.

Pretty aromas of stone fruit and apple shine with accents of crushed herb (chervil, perhaps) and a little butter.  Then rich and lightly fleshy with pear, apple, peach, and buttery flavors and a dusting of crushed stone at the end.  A nice briskness makes this refreshing on its own and it will certainly shine with roast chicken, seafood and more.  Fine wine, fine value.

Dom Dupeuble Beaujolais 2015 Product #30978 (In Stock)
Dom Dupeuble Beaujolais 2015 Dom Dupeuble Beaujolais 2015

From an old (since the 1500s) estate that takes growing Beaujolais seriously - 50-100 year-old vines, no chemicals in the vineyard, hand harvested, no SO2 used in vinfification, and so on.  This serious approach delivers a 2014 BoJo that's all about fun!  Ripe and fleshy with dark plum and black raspberry fruit with earthy chocolate accents and a touch of granite on the mouthwatering finish.

Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Fleurie 2014 Product #30262 (In Stock)
Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Fleurie  2014 Jean Marc Lafont Beaujolais Cru Fleurie  2014

Wines like this are why Beaujolais is such an under-appreciated category.  Aromas of fresh raspberries and violets invite you to take a sip.  On the palate, it's filled with ripe berry fruit, vibrant acidity, and just enough tannin to hold the whole thing together.  Fresh and juicy, yet sophisticated enough for a dinner party, it's a wine that will make you smile.

Dom Des Braves Regnie Beaujolais 2014 Product #31075 (In Stock)
Dom Des Braves Regnie Beaujolais 2014 Dom Des Braves Regnie Beaujolais 2014

We don't see a lot of Cru Regnie in the market, perhaps because this was the last village to be elevated to Cru status in 1988.  The bright pink granite soils and cool temperatures give Gamay extra freshness here, even as the fine 2014 growing season gives richness and depth  - in fact, this is steak night Beaujolais!  Loads of dark, ripe, blueberry and roasted strawberry fruit with accents of roasted coffee, hot stones and expensive leather show on the generous aromas and nicely intense palate.  Notes of graphite and rosemary join the earthy fruit on the long, firm, finish.  Exciting stuff here for now-2024.

Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2014 Product #30885 (In Stock)
Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2014 Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2014

A benchmark Gamay from 50 year-old vines growing on steeply sloped, rocky, soils on the side of the ancient volcano now known as Mont Brouilly. Claude Geoffray and son Claude-Edouard partially destem their fruit, ferment whole cluster, and age the wine in a mixture of concrete and old oak casks.  The 2014 is a perfect introduction to the delights of Beaujolais, with generous crunchy black cherry and raspberry fruit, lavender accents, and juicy, fresh, acids.  Try it a bit cool on a picnic or at home with sausages or grilled chicken and you'll see why this is one of the most exciting summer reds in the store.

"This was an impressive, occasionally outstanding set of wines that show just what the Côte de Brouilly can do in the right hands. There is freshness and tension in these wines, which are very natural and effortless. The 2014 Côte de Brouilly has a focused bouquet and is more serious than the Brouilly, with fresh strawberry mixed with raspberry coulis and cold stone scents. The palate is medium-bodied, supple and fleshy on the entry. The acidity here is beautifully judged with a svelte and quite sensual finish. This is a fine Côte de Brouilly, not complex, but nicely detailed and overflowing with freshness."Wine Advocate 89-91 points
