This Beaune negociant that also owns Château des Jacques produces a regular, red-fruit-flavored Beaujolais Villages. It is an easy wine, made to enjoy young with its light texture and fruitiness.
Saturated violet. Lively and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red and blue fruit scents sharpened by a peppery nuance. Juicy and lithe on the palate, offering tangy red currant and bitter cherry flavors; an earthy licorice note builds on the back half. Subtly gripping tannins firm a nicely persistent finish that echoes the peppery quality.
Vivid ruby-red. Blue fruits and cherry on the nose, and hints of pungent flowers and baking spices in the background. Fleshy and open-knit, offering jammy boysenberry and cherry flavors that turn spicier with air. Closes smooth and gently spicy, with subtle tannins and a touch of succulent herbs.
