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.

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 2015 Product #31589 (In Stock)
Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2015 Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2015

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 2015 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.

"Bottled 3 weeks prior to my visit, the 2015 Côte de Brouilly was very closed on the nose though you can tell that it is packed to the rafters with fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with intense red and black fruit, superb mineralité and harmony, gradually building in the mouth with a compelling, tensile finish. What a fantastic Beaujolais in the making - about as good as it gets to be quite honest. If I taste a better QPR wine this year...no, just impossible."Wine Advocate 94 points
