Le Beaujolais Cru est arrive!

#1 Post by Stas Medvedev » November 20th, 2020, 1:01 pm

3rd Thursday of November aka Beaujolais Nouveau.⁣

I love this day as it's a good reason to uncork Beaujolais. I don't follow the craziness of Nouveau and advise you to stay away from this commercial toxic drink. Choose fine Beaujolais Cru instead. ⁣

This is what we did yesterday and focused on Moulin à vent only.⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟖 𝐌𝐞𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐋𝐞𝐬 𝐌𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐬⁣
Good address for serious Beaujolais in Burgundian style. It was very youthful indeed, but huge potential sensed right away. Purple color, violets on the nose, touch of oak. Seek for wines with some bottle age. ⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟕 𝐂𝐡â𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐮 𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐁𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐬⁣
Bordeaux shaped bottles. Long elevage. Certified biodynamics. ⁣
This wine is all about the greatness of the fruit. So ripe and fragrant. Healthy vines and optimal harvesting. Wine doesn't overwhelm with variety of aromas and flavours but strikes with its depth and precision. Concentration of fruit wrapped in violets.⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟔 𝐃𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐉𝐞𝐚𝐧-𝐏𝐚𝐮𝐥 𝐃𝐮𝐛𝐨𝐬𝐭⁣
This is natural wine made with carbonic maceration. It makes it lighter in style with wide spectrum of berries, flowers and spices. Full of everything in bright summer colours. Optimal balance of all the elements. Good grip of tannins, lightweight. Cheerful and graceful wine. Instant pleasure, no need to age.⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟓 𝐃𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐋𝐚𝐛𝐫𝐮𝐲𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐩 𝐝𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐫⁣
Destemmed, Burgundian elevage. Comes from clay rich site. Dense and concentrated with fuller body. Pommard with accentuated fruit.⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟒 𝐃𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐝𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐠𝐫è𝐬 (𝐀𝐥𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐭 𝐁𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐭) 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐧𝐮𝐦⁣
Pale in color and pale on the palate. Lacks the concentration. Easy regional Bourgogne style.⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟐 𝐂𝐡â𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐮 𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐉𝐚𝐜𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐬 (𝐋𝐨𝐮𝐢𝐬 𝐉𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐭) 𝐋𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞 ⁣
The most Burgundian of all. WOTN. Yes, it has loads of oak, but it perfectly suits the wine. It's not heavy vanilla, but elegant and in unison with all other elements. Pure and perfume which takes you to the top sites of Cot d'Or. Peak maturity now. Splendid wine!⁣

𝟐𝟎𝟎𝟖 𝐃𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐋𝐚𝐛𝐫𝐮𝐲𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐋𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐨𝐬 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐞⁣
The most mineral of all wines tonight. Granite parcel just below the Moulin. Minerality in the inorganic sense. Some tar, fur. And good fruit. Rose petal - red and floral. Oak is well integrated and is not evident. Fine Burgundian style. Cold and elegant as some of Cote de Nuits, but fruit is more persistent. Acidity is prominent.⁣
