Forty Ounce Red (Gamay) 2016 (1.0 liter) Product #32648 (In Stock)
Forty Ounce Red (Gamay) 2016 (1.0 liter) Forty Ounce Red (Gamay) 2016 (1.0 liter)

Depending on how you look at it, this throw-back 1 liter bottle (looking like a 40 oz "bomber" of malt liquor) is either really clever or really tacky.  But it's certainly a really good value in a really, really, good wine.  It's 100% Gamay from Sommelier Patrick Cappiello and winemaker Julien Brand that's loaded with ripe, plummy, fruit.  This is "fruity" the way the French do "fruity," with big aromas and flavors of just ripe strawberry and cherry and just a hint of herb for interest.  A great party red, a thirst quenching afternoon reviver, and fun for Thanksgiving, too.

Terres Dorees (Jp Brun) Beaujolais Vv L'ancien 2015 Product #32327 (In Stock)

Jean-Paul Brun is one of Beaujolais elite producers, tending his vineyards naturally and vinifying Gamay as if it were fine Burgundy.  This cuvee from 40-50 year-old delivers layers of blueberry, blackberry, fresh fig, warm stone, and meadow flower aromas and flavors.  Richly textured, with plenty of ripe fruit, and a clean, mouthwatering finish.  Roast a chicken and drink this. Life will be good.

"Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, high-pitched red berry and floral aromas, along with suggestions of incense and Asian spices. Suave, seamless and penetrating in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and rose pastille flavors that smoothly combine richness and vivacity. A spine of juicy acidity adds structure and lift as well as urgency. Leaves a deeper blue fruit note behind on the very long, sappy finish, which reveals no rough edges and impressive energy. This wine delivers some serious value." Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Dom Les Fines Graves Moulin A Vent 2015 Product #32110 (In Stock)
Dom Les Fines Graves Moulin A Vent 2015 Dom Les Fines Graves Moulin A Vent 2015

This is a stunner and can hold a decade.  From 60 year-old vines, it's loaded with fruit but not at all heavy and finishes long, long, long.  Costs about $10 less than it should - really, this is a fantastic bottle of Gamay.

"Blue fruits, candied licorice and peppery spices on the deeply perfumed nose and in the mouth. Lush and expansive in style, showing very good depth as well as vivacity thanks to a core of juicy acidity and a smoky mineral flourish. The mineral quality carries strongly through a long, sappy finish that's framed by supple, even tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 92 points

"This is a serious, complex cru wine from Jacky Janodet. It is full of structured tannins and rich black fruits. It is a wine that will age with its dry core and layers of acidity. There is a brighter element to this impressive wine that keeps the aftertaste juicy and crisp."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Guy Breton Regnie 2014 Product #32142 (In Stock)

This captures the purity and minerality of 2014 beautifully from this rarely seen Cru. 

"Mineral-tinged aromas of black raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille, along with a hint of white pepper in the background. Lithe and appealingly sweet, offering dark berry and spicecake flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Shows very good clarity and minerally cut on the finish, which is framed by sneaky, harmonious tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2016 Product #32677 (In Stock)
Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2016 Ch Thivin Cote De Brouilly 2016

As Wine Advocate reported after tasting (but not yet rating) the 2016s here: "I have bleated on about the brilliance of Thivin's Côte de Brouilly, in my mind one of the finest offerings from Beaujolais, an exemplary expression of Gamay from one of its most propitious terroirs. In summary, it is onwards and upwards from Château Thivin."  The essence of snappy, minerally, delicious BoJo.

Guy Breton Morgon VV 2014 Product #32141 (In Stock)
Guy Breton Morgon VV 2014 Guy Breton Morgon VV 2014

"Urgent aromas of fresh dark berries, licorice and incense are accompanied by a suggestion of smoked meat in the background. Sappy and broad on entry, then more taut in the midpalate, offering concentrated boysenberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. A vibrant mineral flourish adds lift and cut to the finish, which lingers with excellent floral-tinged persistence."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

Jean Foillard Morgon Cote Du Py 2015 Product #32143 (In Stock)
Jean Foillard Morgon Cote Du Py 2015 Jean Foillard Morgon Cote Du Py 2015

From one of the finest winemakers in Morgon, this is benchmark Cru Beaujolais in the warm, fleshy, 2015 vintage.  Exotic aromas of crushed dark berry and five spice pour from the glass and flow onto the palate with notions of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate.  There's plenty of Morgon structure but the finish is smooth, rich and long with building sweetness of fruit.  Lovely stuff!
