  1. Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml
    Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml

    crewcap. This Beaujolais cherrybomb is drawn from 20- to 40-year-old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-Vérand (southern Beaujolais). The winemaking here has remained unchanged for decades, with traditional whole-bunch, semi-carbonic ferment in concrete tanks and then maturation in tank and ancient oak casks still the order of the day.

    As opposed to his age-worthy Crus from Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, et al, Chermette's aim here is to produce something light-bodied and cherry-fruited with reach-for-another-glass charm--something the juicy-crunchy 2019 nails with ease. From one of the region's great addresses, this is a punchy and buoyant red that goes down dangerously easily. PWS

    Pale peach skin color. Fresh citrus fruits, red berries and a hint of nectarine on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering light-bodied strawberry, tangerine and succulent herb flavors. Finishes smooth and subtly sweet, with a repeating red berry note and good tenacity.

  2. Chateau Thivin Cotes du Brouilly Sept Vignes 2019 375ml
    Chateau Thivin Cotes du Brouilly Sept Vignes 2019 375ml
    Thivin's 2019 Côte de Brouilly unwinds in the glass with inviting aromas of plums, red berries, warm spices and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, it's bright and precise, with fine depth at the core and real energy, concluding with a long, gently tannic finish. A touch finer-boned and more dynamic than the gourmand, demonstrative 2018, this is showing very well. WILLIAM KELLEY, robertparker.com

  3. Chateau Cambon Beaujolais 2019
    Chateau Cambon Beaujolais 2019
    Chateau Cambon is the creation of a cult-Beaujolais triad; the late Marcel Lapierre, Jean Claude Chanudet and Joseph Chamonard. Like-minded in their pursuit of purity, this 2019 Beaujolais is fleshy and joyful - uncomplicated happiness in a glass.

    Today the estate is run by Marie Lapierre, Marcel's wife with help from her son Matthieu. They've rejuvenated old vines, some over 100 years old from forgotten vineyards between the crus of Morgon and Brouilly.  Chemicals are avoided in the vineyard. Biodynamic practices are employed and thoughtful winemaking in the cellar. Toil in the vineyard is preferred to work in the winery to prime the purity of the gamay fruit.

    Josh Raynolds noted its predecessor, the 2018 '…conveys a suave blend of richness and energy finishing impressively long and juicy, displaying finely interwoven tannins and resonating florality.' And NYT wine critic Eric Asimov is a fan too, he described the 15' as 'bright, earthy, lip-smacking, slightly rustic straight Beaujolais from Château Cambon, the kind of wine that you simply don't want to stop drinking.'


    Alluring notes of red and blue fruits, sweet spices and fresh earth tempt from the get go. A fleshy and joyful core is enlivened by an energetic line of acidity. There's a beautiful play on fruit, spice and earth with mineral flecks dotted throughout. Silky tannins sign off the wine, urging you to take another sip. A delightful  uncomplicated wine that is pure happiness in a glass. GABRIELLE POY, PWS

  5. Chateau Thivin 'L'Heronde' Cote de Brouilly 2018
    Chateau Thivin 'L'Heronde' Cote de Brouilly 2018
    A single site located mid-slope on Mount Brouilly with a southern exposure. The best grapes from this site go into this bottling, with the remainder used in the Sept Vignes. Rich, fleshy and succulent wine with a heap of exotic spice, blueberry and blackberry pie, and violet perfume. It’s ripe and juicy, almost sweet, but has ripe silty tannin and and a stony feel to go with that, and fine acidity through its core. Finish is full of fruit, pastry crust, and a whole lot more of that spice. Kind of exuberant now, but should come up very nicely with some bottle age. (94) GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  6. Bernard Metrat Fleurie 'La Roilette' Beaujolais 2019 1500ml
    Bernard Metrat Fleurie 'La Roilette' Beaujolais 2019 1500ml
    From vines planted 1924 and 1936. La Roilette is regarded as one of the best sites in Fleurie, and this old vines cuvee (60-90+ years old vines) is produced from a patch of vines planted in pink granite-clay soil located beside the winery in the northern part of the appellation beside Moulin-a-Vent. 15% of this cuvee is vinified in barrel (none new) giving extra dimension to its freshness and perfume, will also age for 10+ years. This is Gamay at it's finest and beautifully perfumed best. PWS

    La Roilette cru sits on very deep black granite. Historically, La Roilette used to be part of Moulin-à-Vent, which borders it to the east. In 1920, when Fleurie was demarcated, La Roilette ended up in Fleurie. This wine comes from vines planted in the 1920s and 1930s, and it has amazing density and precision.
