• Domaine Les Fines Graves Beaujolais on Friday the 6th

    Friday the 6th at 4pm
    Last Friday I was sitting in my easy chair at the wine shop, drinking my espresso while trying to figure the meaning of life when all of a sudden my messenger started to blow up.  It seemed like every 3 seconds I was hearing the ding...ding...ding...ding...ding...yeah that annoying.  Finally I was like...WTF!!!  Can't I just enjoy a coffee in peace?  Now that my inner-mind was active I looked to see what the the big urgent message was.  It was Katie... and she was going off on these amazing wines from Beaujolais and how mind-blowing they were.
    Okay...I'll bite and I tasted them...Some pretty fine juice and since we have some holiday bird action coming up soon...why the hell not taste you all on them?

    2015 Domaine Les Fines Graves Beaujolais-Villages - Vivid red. Pungent aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry licorice and mocha carry a smoky mineral topnote. Pliant dark fruit flavors and hints of rose pastille and bitter chocolate, along with a jolt of cracked pepper that adds backend cut. Finishes broad, smooth and quite long, revealing no rough edges and a lingering suggestion of sappy dark berries. This wine consistently delivers great value and punches well above its weight.

    2015 Domaine Les Fines Graves Chénas - This cru wine is still young and firm. It has great tannins and a dense character that will give a rich generous wine as it matures. Black-cherry fruit dominates along with the structure. It is a solid wine that will be ready to drink from 2018.

    2015 Domaine Les Fines Graves Moulin-à-Vent - 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. Drink from 2018.
